The family loved these. Although fried, it didn't taste oily at all. Easy to make and with excellent results. It took longer than expected for fries to brown and crisp up, but worth the while nonetheless! (Remember to use/pick potatoes of similar size so that they cook evenly while boiling.) Thanks for posting!
