Recipe Tips

For best fries choose long potatoes.

Use coconut oil or ghee since these fats are more stable at high temperatures.

To get the crispy texture, don’t overcrowd the pan.

Enjoy right away since the texture won’t stay the same after storing.

Since we don’t peel these potatoes and keeping the skin on if possible buy organic potatoes.
