Roasted potatoes with herb salt

Roast potatoesFlavoured salt

Crunchy, golden exterior giving way to fluffy, soft interior flavoured with thyme and rosemary infused salt. That is what you get when you eat these potatoes. And honestly, nothing more needs to be said so I won’t even try to wax lyrical about it. Just make these, eat them and then come back to tell me how good they were.
