Why Are Crispy And Fluffy Potatoes Important???
Crispy, fluffy potatoes are important because crispy means not soggy! And therefore not full of fat or oil. Fluffy means light, porous and able to soak up the flavour of whatever you dip the potatoes in or serve them with.
Tips and Tricks for Crispy And Fluffy Potatoes
#1 Always use floury potatoes. Types of floury potato include Maris Piper and King Edward. Check the package and the potatoes will be described as suitable for baking, chips and roasting
#2 Par-cook the potatoes before putting them in the oven (unless you are cooking wedges which do not require par-cooking!)
#3 Toss the potatoes in oil and salt and place on a flat baking sheet – air and heat will circulate better on a flat sheet
#4 Cook the potatoes in a hot (200-210 C fan) oven to cook and crisp the potatoes!
