I’m a big fan of the potato. It’s probably because I’m Irish (a few Fitzgeralds and a boat ride ago). In any case, my cute little family loves fries to go alongside, say, a tasty burger with a pretzel bun, a black bean burger or even a handful of chicken in the shape of dinosaurs.
But no matter how hard I tried, I could not get my taters crispy and I really, really hate to fry food. No, not because of the heath factor (sorry) but because it’s so darn hard to get the smell out of my kitchen (and my hair).
So, when this blog boasted crispy fires from my oven, I started peeling.
I learned that the trick was to soak my taters in water !
I followed the directions and PRESTO! Crispy fries.
