Type of potato

First of all, you need to know what type of potato you can best use. For potatoes roasted in the oven, it’s best to use a type of potato that’s a little crumbly, like new potatoes Peel the potatoes and, depending on size, cut them in half and then cut those halves in half so you get pieces of equal sizes.


Put a pot of water on the stove, wait for it to boil and add a bit of salt to it. Add the cut potatoes to the water and boil them for about 10 minutes. Boil the potatoes until just before they’re properly cooked – that’s the key here. They have to go in the oven later, so you don’t want them to be completely done already before that. Check this by sticking a fork in a piece of potato. If the outside is soft but the inside is still a little hard, they’re perfect and you should take them off the heat. Drain the water from the pot, but leave the potatoes in there for a little while.
