This will take time but its worth it.
- Potatoes, large ones cut into wedges.
- Olive oil.
- A dash of lemon juice.
- Freshly ground pepper.
- Garlic, smashed up.
- Any dry herbs.
Rub all the ingredients except the butter on the potato wedges. Taste and adjust the seasoning.
Use a large heavy pan. Get it hot and then spread the potatoes without stacking them on top of each other.
Cover with foil and cook on low heat.
Occasionally move them around. If they appear to be going dry, add butter.
If you start running out of patience, cut the wedges into small pieces. Do this while they are in the pan and if you burn your fingers, don’t worry, it added more flavor to the dish.
The potatoes may take upto an hour to be fully cooked.
One way to speed this up is by parboiling them before the spices where rubbed on them. This will save you a lot of time but the end result may become softer than the firm potatoes this method will give.
