Method

  1. Melt the butter in a large pan (one with a tight-fitting lid) over a medium heat, add the potatoes with a pinch of sea salt, then stir to coat. Pour over the stock and sherry vinegar. Bring to a simmer, cover with the lid, then reduce the temperature and simmer gently for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are almost tender.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of olive oil in a frying pan and fry the slices of ham until crisp, then set aside to cool.
  3. Bring a pan of salted water to the boil and cook the beans for 3 minutes until just tender. Drain and cool under running water. If you have time (and the inclination), remove the skins of the beans – this is called double-podding.
  4. Remove the lid from the potatoes and continue cooking for about 5 minutes until fully tender. Stir in the beans and pedro ximénez sherry. Crumble over the crisp ham and sprinkle with the parsley to serve.

  1. Loved this potato salad. The sherry adds a sweetness which is counterbalanced by the salty serrano. I used edamame beans instead of peas and cooked it all in advance just leaving out the Pedro which I added when warming it back up and it came out perfectly.
