Directions:

  • Wash and dry 5 medium potatoes. Use a sharp knife to cut potatoes in long thin strips.  Place potato strips into a medium-sized bowl, add cold water just to cover the potatoes, and let them stand for 20 minutes.  This step will help to get rid of some of the potato starch and your fries will turn out crispy.

  • As soon as the potato strips start browning on the edges and become crispy on the outside and soft inside, your fries are ready!  Take them out of the oven, and serve hot. They start to lose the crispiness as they cool down.

Notes

Soaking the potatoes helps get rid of some of the potato starch and make the fries a little crispy.
