  • Crips and delicious looking roast potatoes – thank you – not used pork fat for roasting – my gran did and her potatoes were the best!

  • I have done this with duck fat and it was awesome – I would be willing to try pork lard too! – thanks for sharing


    • Duck fat sounds interesting too – do the potatoes get quite crispy?

  • My Nan always used to use lard and I guess we’ve steered away from it over the years … will definitely try over Christmas to see if they taste as good as I remember they did as a child!

  • Oh yes, also Nigella Lawson used pork fat to roast potatoes. I’ve never tried, but I’m curious now!
