    Cut this recipe in half, otherwise made as posted . Nice to have fries that were not store bought. Nice aand crispy, and enjoyed as a side to lunch. Made for 1-2-3 hits

    As my husband said, "awesome fries." :-) I left the peels on, and fried them in a small pot in batches. I also drained them on a rack before serving. For ZWT6 family picks.

    Great fries. In addition to frying twice, I soaked them in water for 3 hours to remove the starch....this makes for a "crispier" fry. Made for ZWT6 for the Unrulies Under the Influence.

    LOVED these fries, the double fry method really makes a differance. Came out soft inside and crunchy out - YUM; The only think I did differant than directed is I did not peel the potatoes. These are wonderful and will be the way I prepare fries from now on. Made for ZWT #6
