Perfect roast potatoes with sage and lemon for your Sunday roast.

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 5, 190°C, fan 170°C. Put the potatoes in a large pan of salted water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 8-10 minutes. Spoon the fat into a roasting tin and put in the oven for 5 minutes.
  2. Drain the potatoes and shake gently to roughen up. Sprinkle evenly with polenta and shake again. Carefully tip the potatoes into the preheated tin and turn to coat them evenly. Roast for 40 minutes, turning once halfway through. Stir in the sage leaves and lemon zest and roast for 15 minutes more, until crisp and golden. Drain on kitchen paper.
