Herby roast potatoes

Who doesn’t love roast potatoes? I don’t know anyone, unless they’re following some dismal fad :-)

Anyway, these are gorgeous and herby and crispy and fluffy and garlicky and salty and… what more could you want?

Rapture-causing potatoes.

    5 mins
  • Cook
    40 mins
  • Difficulty
  • 4-5 medium/large floury potatoes
  • 3-4 dessert spoons of goose fat or lard
  • 2 dessert spoons of dried mixed herbs, any finely chopped fresh herbs you care to use, such as rosemary
  • 1 fat garlic clove, crushed
  • sea salt
  • black pepper
Peel and chop the potatoes into large bitesize pieces, one potato will prob take 8 chops.

Parboil them until slightly cooked, around 10-15 mins.

Meantime stir the crushed garlic into the goose fat or lard and heat in a high temp oven, 230-240 degrees for a few mins until spitting hot.

Drain the potatoes well and add them to the hot fat. Sprinkle over the seasoning and herbs and turn the potatoes around in the fat so they get a good coating.

Roast until golden brown and crispy on the outside and fluffy inside, around 20-25 mins.
