- 2 kg Woolworths everyday large potatoes, peeled and halved lengthways
- 165 g Woolworths free-range duck fat
- Salt, to taste
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil.
Add the potatoes and cook until just tender. Remove the pot from the heat and roughen the outside of the potatoes using a fork.
Place the duck fat in a large roasting pan and heat in the oven for 10 minutes (it will melt and become liquid). Carefully add the potatoes to the roasting dish and roast for 1 hour, turning every 20 minutes. They should be completely crisp on the outside and fluffy inside.
Remove the potatoes from the roasting tray and drain on kitchen paper. Season with salt while still hot.
Cook's note: There's a reason Woolies sells duck fat all year round. Used instead of butter or oil, it will lend a magical, festive flavour to the crunchiest roast potatoes you've ever served. Be brave! You can take up Pilates in January.
