    Roast Potatoes and Parsnips (for 10)

    • Christmas
    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 50 minutes to 60 minutes

    Serves: 10

    Ingredients

    • 1875g floury potatoes, eg King Edwards
    • 8 tbsp Graisse d’Oie or sunflower oil
    • 625g parsnips, halved lengthways

    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 190°C, gas mark 5.
    2. Cut the potatoes into large chunks and place in a large pan of cold water, bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Put the goose fat in a roasting tin and heat in the oven until sizzling. Drain the potatoes, return to the pan, season and heat for 1-2 minutes until dry.
    3. Carefully add the potatoes and parsnips to the hot fat and turn to coat. Roast in the oven for 50-60 minutes or until golden brown, turning once towards the end of cooking.

    Cook's tips

    Cook's tip: Parboiling the potatoes first is the secret to making roast potatoes with a golden outside and fluffy inside. In a full oven they can take a while to turn golden, so once the turkey is cooked and resting, increase the temperature to 200°C, gas mark 6.

    Variation

    Try this: To save time, use a 1kg bag Waitrose Frozen Roasting Potatoes. You can also buy Waitrose Fresh Parsnips in a 1kg family pack, or Waitrose Frozen Quartered Roasting Parsnips in packs of 750g, which you can place straight in the roasting tin.
