I love fresh cut fries. But my husband doesn't like me playing like that with knives so I always resorted to the frozen kind.

And to be honest cutting potatoes with a knife ain’t fun.

So when I got my potato slice and dice tool, fresh fries were had by all. Like three times in the same week.

I was excited!

The first time I went ahead and fried them cause I wanted the crunch.

But I don’t fry food like that. It makes a mess and the smell lingers. And the way my sense of smell is set up. That’s not gone work.

So I tried my hand at making fresh cut fries.  In the oven.  And I dared to still make them crispy.

And it worked.

I did two things to make that happen and I’m gonna share those two things with you today.

Two Tips to Make Crispy Fresh Cut Fries in the Oven

Soak them

When I was at the home show getting my potato slice and dice ( that’s not what it’s called but it’s what I call it) she told me if you soak the cut potatoes in cold water for roughly 20 minutes or so, it helps remove excess starch.

*mind blown*

And it worked! Fuh Real!
