4-5 lbs of medium Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
1/2 cup of duck fat
1. Place potatoes into a large pot and add just enough water to cover them. Salt the water. Place over medium high heat and simmer until they are soft but still hold their shape, about 10-15 minutes, then drain.
