How to get ultra crispy French fries in the oven?

Making French fries is super easy: just cut potatoes into the shape of fries and, for a healthy version, bake them in the oven with a little oil. You can of course also fry them too.

However, there is a very important step not to skip to get crispy French fries. : Place the fries in a bowl of hot water for 10 minutes before baking them. Then dry the fries with a clean cloth.

Why? This step allows the starch to escape from the potatoes and make them crispier when baked.

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 200 ° C (fan oven).

Depending on the type of potato, you can choose to keep the skin on or not. Personally, I like to leave it because on the one hand there are plenty of nutrients in the skin and on the other hand, it saves me time!

Fill a large pot with water and bring the water to a boil. Meanwhile wash the potatoes and cut them into the shape of fries.

Remove the water from the heat, then pour the potatoes into the hot water. Leave to soak for 10 minutes.

Then, drain the potatoes and dry them in a clean cloth. In a salad bowl, add the potatoes, salt, pepper, Provence herbs and olive oil. Mix well.

Oil your baking sheet and place the potatoes. Spread them well. Then, bake for 40 minutes, turning them if necessary after 20 minutes baking.

Note

If you want to prepare these fries ahead of time, bake them for 30 minutes only. Then place them in the oven for 10 minutes before serving and they will be even crispier!
