Life’s too short to suffer bad roast potatoes, but thankfully I wouldn’t know because mine are pretty awesome!
A tad conceited perhaps, but my roast potatoes almost never fail to come out golden, delicious and with that all important “crunch”!
Unfortunately, there isn’t a lone “trick” to making the perfect roast potato, but rather a series of simple, yet essential, steps that yield the desired result. Parboiling the potatoes in heavily salted water is a vitally important part of the recipe, so don’t be tempted to skip it.
Arguably the most important factor in making your roast potatoes is, however, the fat you chose to cook them in. There are a variety of options out there, but I prefer using duck fat. Healthy and relatively easy to source, duck fat makes for great results!
