Duck Fat Potatoes

Instructions

1

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

2

Place potatoes in a saucepan of cold salted water and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to medium and cook for 5 mins or until par-boiled. This leads to crispy edges and fluffy interiors.

3

Drain, then return to the pan and move the pan around well over medium heat to dry out the potatoes and create rough edges (this will help them get crispy).

4

Spoon the duck fat into a roasting pan and place in oven for 5 mins to cook down.

5

Remove from the oven, carefully add the potatoes and (watch for splashes) gently toss to coat evenly.

6

Season with salt and pepper. You can also use rosemary, thyme or any of your preferred seasonings.

7

Return to the oven and roast, turning twice for 45 mins, or until the potatoes are golden and crisp (every oven is different so be sure to test a few). Sprinkle with flake salt and serve.
