Perfect roast potatoes
- 1.8kg King Edward potatoes, peeled and cut into large, even-sized pieces
- 250ml olive oil
- Preheat oven to 200C, gas 6. Place potatoes in a large pan and just cover with water. Put on the lid and bring to the boil, then simmer for 5 mins. Drain and shake in a colander to fluff up the edges.
- Pour the oil into a large roasting tin and heat on the hob. Carefully arrange the potatoes in one layer in the tin - the oil should be so hot it sizzles when the potatoes go in. Turn them so they're evenly coated in oil and roast for 40 mins, turning halfway through cooking.
- Drain off the oil and season with salt. Cook for a further 5 mins.
