Re: Roast potatoes

What we generally do is par boil them first then in the pan with the lid on jiggle them around so it roughs up the exterior of the spud.

Baste in Goose Fat.

Once roasted this makes for the perfect crispy texture.

I think it's a 'Delia' method

Re: Roast potatoes

duck fat

but olive oil is fine

par-boil as far as you dare (five more mins and it's potato soup)
toss in scintillatingly hot fat
shove in hot oven

serve sprinkled with maldon sea salt

Lick Re: Roast potatoes

Olive Oil with some sea salt, freshly ground black pepper & maybe some rosemary from the garden.

Sometimes I add a garlic clove or two.

Re: Roast potatoes

Olive oil is rubbish for crispy spuds.
(Doesn't get as hot as others?)

Sunflower.
