How do you cook Roast Potatoes?

Doing a roast for the first time, anyone in here know how do cook a decent roasty?

I got King Edwards as they're supposed to be the best for roasting apparently.

Help!

Boil them for a while first before roasting them

I just told you

Boil for 10 minutes.

Then roast them until crispy

Peel them obviously, rough up the surface with a fine grater, par boil them, then stick them in a hot oven with your joint for the last 45 minutes, spooning a bit of the fat and meat juice on them.

Peel the spuds, boil them in a pan of water until slighty soft. Drain the water off them, put them in an oven dish, cover them in a little olive oil (beef dripping is better!!) and roast in the oven.

Par boil them
Drain them off, put on a greased baking tray. Brush them over with oil (or a bit of dip out of the frying pan!) shove em in the overn but tremember to turn them to get them done evenly.

Boil them for about 10 minutes. Pour out the water. Put the lid on the pan and shake the spuds to roughen up the edges ( it makes them more fluffy) . Meanwhile, put a baking tray in the oven with plenty of cooking oil in it ( sunflower is best if you haven't already got any animal fat in the fridge). Transfer the spuds to the baking tray in the oven when the oil is hot and cook until golden brown on about 180 degrees C for about 40 minutes, basting occasionally.

Yum

As suggested on the Sara Cox show on Radio 1, brush a bit of Marmite over them prior to shotting them in the roasting tin.

Not had chance to try it yet but it sounds lovely.

Another tip which I've not had a chance to try yet, from Nigella, is to tumble the boiled potatos in semolina powder before roasting, she swears by it.

I'd sooner smother Nigela in baby oil before I roast her.
