Ingredients

  • 8 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 2kg potato , such as King Edward or Maris Piper
  • 1 garlic bulb, halved (optional)

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Heat the oil in a large roasting tin in the oven. Cut any larger potatoes in half. Cover the potatoes in cold salted water, bring up to the boil and cook for 2 mins. Drain and steam-dry in a colander for 5 mins, then shake to ruffle up the outsides.

  • STEP 2

    Remove the roasting tin – be really careful as the oil will be hot. Tip in the potatoes and garlic (if using), and use a spoon to turn them so they are all coated in the oil. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper, and roast for 1 hr 45 mins, turning every 30 mins or so, until really crisp and golden.
