Cream Peas and New Potatoes

1 lb. new potatoes in bite size pieces
1 1/2 c. peas
1 1/2 tb butter
1 tb cornstarch
1/2 ts sea salt
1/8 ts pepper, black
1 c milk

Boil potatoes until tender, add peas when potatoes are almost done, drain. I like to salt and pepper the potatoes.

Melt butter in separate saucepan. Blend in cornstarch, salt, and pepper.
Gradually add milk. Heat to boiling over direct heat and then boil
gently 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour cream sauce over potatoes and peas.
