Crunchy Seasoned Fries

The crunchiest homemade fries you will ever make!
  1. Wash and peel the potatoes.
  2. Cut each potato into thick-style fries. (This prevents them from breaking up).
  3. Preheat the oven to 390°F (200°C).
  4. Now, add the chopped potatoes to a pot of water and bring to a boil.
  5. Keep boiling the potatoes for about 5 minutes or until the edges being to soften (we only want to 50% cook the potatoes).
  6. Drain the water from the semi-cooked potatoes and rattle the pot with the lid on it until the edges of the semi-cooked potatoes start to fluff. Don't overdo this, as the potatoes will break apart too much. This gives the potatoes a crunchier finish when we cook them in the oven.
  7. Now, coat the fries in about 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
  8. Lay the fries flat on a sheet of parchment paper.
  9. Put the fries in the oven and let the chips cook until they have browned and crisped on the outside. Usually, this takes around 35-45 minutes. (This will vary depending on the size and variety of your potatoes).
  10. Once the fires are cooked to your liking, take the fries our of the oven and transfer to a large pot or bowl.
  11. Dust with sea-salt, white pepper, cayenne pepper, and paprika and then serve.
