Using spatula, turn to coat with goose fat. Roast in centre of oven for 20 minutes; turn to coat and sprinkle with 1/4 tsp (1 mL) of the salt. Return to oven; roast for 40 minutes, turning every 20 minutes. Nestle herbs in among potatoes; continue to roast for 15 to 20 minutes or until potatoes are golden brown and crusty in places.
