Preheat the oven to 220 degrees.

Peel and wash the potatoes. Boil in salted water until you can just poke a fork through.

Place potatoes on a tray and drizzle with peanut oil. Season with sea salt, pepper, celery salt, thyme and rosemary.

Roast for 45 minutes at 220 degrees or until crispy and golden all over, turning half way.

Remove the tray from the oven, serve and enjoy!
