    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    The secret ingredient for extra crispy fries is the sugar water, plan ahead the potatoes must be refrigerated in the sugar water overnight

      I made this recipe on 4/2/11 to go with Homestyle Fried Fish Fillets. And except for cutting the recipe in half everything was followed as it was written.I guess the oil didn't get hot enough because the fries weren't that crispy. We did however enjoy the taste. Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "
