Furrowed-Field-Effect Roast Potatoes


Serves 6

Ringing the changes with your roast potatoes needs no more than to cut them into different shapes and sizes.

  • 2 lb (900 g) potatoes

  • 4 oz (110 g) beef dripping salt

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 375F/190C/gas mark 5 and when ready heat up a roasting tray and the dripping.

  2. Parboil the potatoes for 5 minutes, peel and cut them into approximately the same sized domes.

  3. Using a small paring knife, cut lines from the top to the bottom of the potato halves so they resemble a cock's comb.

  4. Paint each potato with hot fat and 'plant' on the baking tray.

  5. Sprinkle with salt and roast for 11/2 hours.

  6. During cooking the edges fan out and are deliciously crisp.
