The Perfect Roast Potatoes
Perfect Roast Potatoes
Start with a good solid-based roasting tin
Put the roasting tin containing a minimum of 75g of fat onto the top shelf of the oven while it pre-heats to gas mark 7/425°F (220°C)
Peel the Potatoes and cut into even-sized pieces.
Place in a saucepan, pour over boiling water, add salt and simmer for about 10 minutes.
Drain, then replace the lid and shake vigorously to fluff up the edges.
Remove the hot roasting tin from the oven and place on a medium hob.
Use a long-handled spoon to quickly lower the potatoes into the hot fat.
Tilt the tray and baste each potato so that they are all completely covered in the hot fat.
Place back on the top shelf of the oven and cook for a further 40-50 minutes or until golden brown.
