RECIPE: Duck Fat potatoes
This recipe is for a special occasion definitely not an everyday food even though you would like it to be. Truffle salt is a delicious addition if you have it.
1 Kg floury Sebago potatoes, cut into 3cm chunks
100grams Duck fat (purchase from your supermarket in the Poultry section)
Pink Himalayan salt or Truffle salt to taste
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Par cook potatoes. Drain, then return to the pan and shake over medium heat to dry out and rough up the edges (this will help them crisp up when roasting).
Place the duck fat in a roasting pan, then place in the oven for 5 minutes to heat. Remove from the oven, add potato to duck fat and gently toss to coat. Return to the oven and roast, turning twice, for 45 minutes or until golden and crispy. Sprinkle with salt and serve.
