1 kg Potatoes (e.g. Maris Piper or King Edwards)
3 tbsp Bath Harvest Rapeseed Oil
Salt & Pepper


1. Preheat oven to 200°C/Gas Mark 6. Place the roasting tin in the oven to heat.

2. Peel and halve the potatoes. Place in a large pan, cover with cold water, add a pinch of salt. Bring to the boil and cook for 5 minutes.

3. Add the Bath Harvest Rapeseed Oil to the hot roasting tin and return to the oven for a 2 minutes to re-heat.

4. Drain the par-boiled potatoes in a colander. Tip back into pan with lid on and allow to steam-dry for 2 minutes. Toss about to give them fluffy-coarse edges.

5. Tip the potatoes into the roasting tray and turn to coat in oil. Season with salt and pepper. Cook for 40 mins – 1 hour, turning and basting every 20 minutes until golden and crispy.
