My mum always boiled the potatoes first and then deep fried them, best "roast" potatoes I've not tasted any better yet

What surprises me is that there still seem to be so many folk who cannot cook decent roasties.  :blush:  With all those recipes about, both in mags and on TV, it makes me wonder .........

I steam them for just 10 minutes, then put them in the bottom pan of the steamer(emptied of water) add veg oil, put the lid on and shake vigourously - they should now have  a fluffed up oiled outer, into a roasting pan into the oven and cook for 35-45 minutes until perfect.
the type of potato used makes a big difference, maris pipers are good using this method- or king Edwards.

King Edwards, par boil, drain, rough up and cool for 10 - 20 mins.

Into really hot goose fat, shake and roast.  ;)
