    • NOTES

    • soaking the potatoes in cold water help them to get crisp nicely and they get evenly fried.

    • rinsing the potatoes in water or cold water helps to remove starch, which can cause the potatoes to stick together during the frying process.

    • alternatively, for crispier french fries you can also soak the potatoes in salt water for several minutes before frying.
