Tips for getting the best roast potatoes
- Boiling From Cold Water - Boiling your potatoes from cold water ensures that they are evenly par-boiled from the inside out. This prevents their outer edges from collapsing when they’re placed in a hot oven.
- Use heavily salted water - The potatoes will soak up cold salted water before they start to cook – salt draws excess starch from the potatoes, thereby ensuring maximum crispness.
- Cooling After Boiling - When the potatoes are roasted from cold, they will already be set and must have stopped cooking, and thus excess moisture from the boiling process would have evaporated. So when cooked in hot fat, the outside of your potatoes would have become perfectly crisp while maintaining that delicious fluffiness inside.
- How to get fluffy roast potatoes - Roughing up the edges of the potatoes once they get parboiled creates a larger surface area for the hot fat to work on.
- What oil/fat To Use - Ideally, use fats with higher burning points. For instance, duck fat, with its higher smoke point and rich flavor will make ultra-crisp roasties with a savory meaty taste. To make these roast potatoes vegan, simply swap the duck fat for vegetable oil.
