Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Rinse the capers to remove the salt crystals then leave them in fresh cold water for 30 minutes, changing the water frequently, until they no longer taste salty.

  • STEP 2

    Mix the potatoes and onion and gently fry in the olive oil in a deep non-stick sauté pan for about 7 minutes. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper, then take off the heat and cover while you prepare the olives. That way the potatoes continue to soften without overcooking.

  • STEP 3

    Cut strips from the olives, working round the stone to remove all the flesh, then add to the potatoes with the capers and 200ml/7floz water. Return to the heat, cover and leave to cook for 10-15 minutes until the potatoes are almost done.

  • STEP 4

    Dissolve the sugar in the vinegar and add to the potatoes in the pan. Bring to the boil, cook for a minute, then remove from the heat. Serve lukewarm.
