Crispy Roast Potatoes

Crispy Roast Potatoes

For perfect crispy roast potatos, here is a great way to make them.
Potato choice is important.

You will need:
Potatoes: Desiree or Maris Piper are good choices
Goose fat / olive oil


1) Pre-heat the oven to Gas Mark 7 - 220*C - 425*F
2) Peel the potatoes and cut into large chunks. Parboil in boiling salted water for 5 minutes. Drain and toss in the pan to roughen the edges
3) Put a generous amount of olive oil or goose fat in a roasting tin and put in oven, until smoking. Carefully take the tin out of the oven and add the potatoes to the hot fat, basting them as you do so
4) Put the tin back in the oven and cook for about 1 hour until the roast potatoes are golden and crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle
Turn them over from time to time whilst they are cooking to make sure they colour on all sides.

And here we have a recipe for amazingly crispy roastys.
