WHO doesn’t love a roast potato?
While most of us can’t resist a good spud, it can be tricky to get them crispy every time.

But, a team of cookery experts at Good Housekeeping has revealed a foolproof way for perfectly crispy roasties.
The trick is to cook them for a very specific length of time and to use a secret ingredient – flour.
To start, you should parboil your potatoes for exactly 12 minutes before roasting.
This will help them to soften and means that the edges can roughen and be “fluffed” up – meaning that the end result will be crispier.

Good Housekeeping say you should then let them dry on their own for precisely three minutes.
Next, you should shake the spuds in a colander to make the edges extra fluffy, before sprinkling them with flour.
The flour will give the potatoes an extra crunch, once cooked.
Once the flour is on, you must make sure that the oil; you’re roasting your potatoes in is piping hot before adding the spuds – or they’ll absorb it and become greasy.
