SERVES

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 1 kg potatoes (King Edward or Maris Piper are ideal for roasties)
  • 50g goose fat or 2 tbs rapeseed oil
  • 1 – 2 sprigs fresh rosemary or a sprinkle of dried herbs
  • Sea salt and black pepper

Method

1
Preheat the oven to 190°C / Fan 170°C / Gas 5.
2
Peel the potatoes and cut into quarters. Put into a pan and cover with cold water then add a good pinch of sea salt. Bring to the boil and simmer for 5-10 minutes.
3
Heat a roasting tin and add the fat/oil, so that it gets good and hot.
4
Drain the potatoes using a colander and return to the pan for a couple of minutes to dry them out. Give them a good shake in the pan to rough up the outsides.
5
Tip carefully in to the hot fat in the roasting tin, add the rosemary/herbs, season and gently mix so that the potatoes are coated with the fat.
6
Return to the oven and roast for 35-40 minutes. Turn occasionally throughout cooking until golden and crispy.
