3 cloves garlic, crushed
¼ cup baby capers in brine
½ cup green pitted olives, drained and halved
1 cup pitted prunes
¼ cup (60ml) sherry vinegar
3 bay leaves
¼ cup oregano
Salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper
½ cup (125ml) dry sherry
1 tablespoon molasses
¼ flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped

1.5kg Spud Lite potatoes, peeled
2 tablespoons garlic olive oil
¼ cup warm milk
½ teaspoon sweet smoked paprika
