    • Preparation time: 35 minutes, plus soaking
    • Cooking time: 2 hours
    • Total time: 2 hours 35 minutes, plus soaking

    Serves: 6 - 8


    1.5kg oury potatoes (such as maris piper or king edward)
    2 rosemary sprigs
    150g goose fat, beef dripping or olive oil 


    1. Peel the potatoes, cut into 4-5cm chunks and rinse in cold water, draining a few times. Put in cold water for 30 minutes; shuffle them occasionally to rinse off the starch. Drain and put in a pan with the rosemary; cover with cold water. Bring to a boil; simmer for 25 minutes, until soft. Drain, shake gently and discard the herbs.

    2. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 200 ̊C, gas mark 6. Heat the fat in a roasting tin for 15 minutes. Add the potatoes, turn, season with sea salt and roast for 1 hour 15 minutes, turning twice. They should be crisp and golden; if not, cook for 15 minutes more. Drain on kitchen paper and sprinkle with more sea salt.
