Cookeen is a refined vegetable fat.

A baked potato is baked without any oil or fat.


If you 'bake' a potato in cookeen it's actually roasting not

baking.


But having said that, yes you can 'roast' potatoes in

cookeen.

Baking doesn't require fat, so the pedantic answer is "no you

can't". Do you in fact mean "can you roast potatoes in cookeen?"?

If that is the question then you probably can, although the results

might be a bit odd. The fat does 2 things to roast potatoes:

Flavours them and makes them crispy. Issues of health aside, I

would opt for goose or duck fat every time. Good favour and turns

out nice crispy potatoes. Not sure what Cookeen would be like on

the crispiness front, but would imagine that the flavour is quite

poor. yes you can and i always do. they cook much quicker and the

outside tastes much more crispy than when cooked any other way. go

ahead you will not be disappointd. no need to add any salt either

with cookeen yes you can and i always do. they cook much quicker

and the outside tastes much more crispy than when cooked any other

way. go ahead you will not be disappointd. no need to add any salt

either with cookeen
