Woman's Weekly recipe Get your roast potatoes nice and crispy by using goose fat. This simple recipe from Woman's Weekly shows you how it's done.

Ingredients

  • 2kg (4½lb) large potatoes for roasting (eg, Maris Piper, King Edwards, Desiree or Kestrel), peeled and cut into chunks
  • 4 tbsp goose fat

Method

  1. Put the potatoes into a large pan of cold water, bring to the boil and then cook for 8 minutes until tender. Drain well, keeping the water for cooking the other vegetables or making the stock for the gravy.
  2. Meanwhile, set the oven to Gas Mark 6 or 200°C. Spoon the goose fat into a large, shallow roasting tin and put in the oven for at least 10 minutes to heat up.
  3. Put the drained potatoes back in the pan, place over a medium heat and shake the pan to “rough up” the edges.
  4. Tip the potatoes into the hot fat in the roasting tin and turn them so that they’re coated in fat. Roast for 30 minutes, then turn them and cook for a further 30 minutes or more, until they’re crisp.
