Roast Potatoes with Herbs and Garlic

6 large thinly peeled potatoes
8 tbsp. soft goose fat
1 bunch mixed fresh herbs (rosemary, thyme)
3 crushed garlic cloves
2 tbsp. sea salt

 

 

 

Make several closely positioned cuts across the tops of the potatoes, but without cutting all the way through. Place them in a baking dish. Spread half the goose fat over the potatoes. Bake for 45-50min in a preheated oven (175◦C/gas 4). Wash the herbs, shake dry, pick off the leaves and chop finely. Mix with the garlic and remaining goose fat and sea salt. About 10min before the end of the potatoes’ cooking time, spread the herby fat over them and finish cooking.
