My Grandma's Herb-Roasted Potatoes

Introduction

I cook these a lot as they're so flavoursome, also because the fond memories I have of walking into my grandmother's home and being welcomed by a big warm 'hug' of herbs. Easy, straightforward and so tasty! Red potatoes make a colourful dish, but new potatoes are fine too. In fact, any will do, just be generous with the herbs. Lovely with a dollop of soured cream on their own, or as an accompaniment to pretty much anything.
