Ingredients:

  • 1 Kg roasting potatoes
  • 1/4 cup Duck fat
  • Freshly ground salt

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C
  2. Peel and wash potatoes, slice into even sized portions
  3. Place in a pot, cover with water and bring to the boil. Drain potatoes.
  4. Place the potatoes in a roasting pan, spoon over the duck fat and roll to cover.
  5. Place in preheated oven and cook for about 45 minutes or until potatoes are golden and crisp.
  6. Sprinkle with salt and serve.

Serving suggestions: Serve hot with your favourite roast – lamb, chicken, duck, turkey, beef or pork or  as tapas with a dipping sauce.

Variations:  Add fresh rosemary and thyme sprigs, or  peeled garlic cloves at the beginning of roasting.

Tip:  Always buy the potato for its end use: floury varieties for baking, mashing and roasting. Waxy varieties for boiling, salads and adding to stews or braises.
