Just because fast food fries are condemned greasy and unhealthy, it doesn’t mean that you have to banish them entirely from your diet. What you can do is to make your own. And instead of frying them in oil, bake them, and get extra crispy French fries that are good for your health.
So what does it take to make fries that are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, and not end up with something soft and soggy after they cool off?
The big secret is to soak the raw potatoes before baking them. This way, the excess starch is removed. The less starch, the crispier the fries are! Check out the full recipe and more techniques from this post below.
