  1. Roast Potato's Cooking On The Corsican Part 32

    Dripping was always something we had in the fridge but I came from a big family so large bits of meat were roasted on a Sunday and sometimes threw the week and the bowl just got topped up , sadly I don't do it anymore I'm here on my own so never roast meat really shame as I miss my dripping on toast which I loved ... cheers ...
  2. Not at all Troutman62 i'v not taken it as a personal affront far from it , Cooking On The Corsican is all about what you can do on a boat with a limited amount of equipment you can still make delicious food , but no problem I did not take your comment personally , maybe if you watch some of my vlogs you will see what I am trying to do , all the best ... cheers ...
  3. Roast Potato's Cooking On The Corsican Part 32

    You know over the years of cooking and reading all this stuff that is out there this is good for you this is bad for you , don't eat this don't eat that , then a year later they change there minds and tell us well you can eat that and you can eat this , now I don't care if I like it I eat it everything in moderation and a little bit of what you fancy dose you good ...
  4. Troutman62 I also make proper home made curry I roast my spices I grind them up I make my paste I cook the paste out for 45 minutes and then I start on the curry this is often a all day job by the time I make some kind of bread to go with it , but the idea of this vlog is that you can with one pan on a boat make something that is not to bad in about a hour OK it wont be the same but it will be very nice a better than any carry out curry you will get on the Broads and a good deal cheaper ...

  7. Roast Potato's Cooking On The Corsican Part 32

    Well as you all probably notice I don't really bother with the low fat options myself , I am past the stage of caring haha , but believe it or not I do eat healthy food mostly but when I feel like a nice treat well a little bit of what you fancy dose you good I think and as you say Hylander its not every day , now off to the boat out till the 16th so next weeks vlog will be a wee bit late don't know what its going to be yet something nice , remember any requests are welcome ...

    If you really are looking to do a low fat roast you can now buy these low fat sprays , I don't no what they are called as I have never used one , once you have gave them a good shake place them out on grease proof give them a spray and roast I'm sure you would get something like a roast potato ...

    Hi Hylander not tried those but I do tend to stick to what i like , as for Trex i'v not used it myself but that will do the job just as well as anything , I would say try the ground nut oil I think you will be pleasantly surprised makes a lovely roast and is suitable for vegetarians ... cheers ...

    It all about using the correct Potato , Maris Piper or King Edwards would be my preferred choice , keep them all the same size when pealed , part boil for 7 to 8 minutes , drain well then return to the pot put the lid back on and give the pot a good shake to break up the outside of the potato , you can roast straight away but I much prefer to let them cool and dry out so you can do the well in advance , now we come to roast them best fat to use is goose with out a doubt will give you the best flavour and a very crispy roast , however it is one of the most unhealthy and not suitable for vegetarians so one of the best I think is ground nut it can put up with the heat and is not to strong so done not effect the flavour of the potato and gives a beautiful crispy coat , but you can use just about any oil or even butter it is really up to you , so follow the roasting steps in the vlog and you wont go to far wrong , you can baste more often if you wish , hope this is of some use to you kind regards ... cheers ...
