Do You Want Fries With That?
Found the camera. Hoorah. And so now you can have a photo and a recipe for salt and vinegar oven fries.
If you like salt and vinegar chips this is right up your alley. I love the flavor combo, but I am picky about just what chips I will eat. Once you go kettle cooked it is hard to go back. But I must say I think I like these better, which is good. They are better for me too.
I made a seasoned salt with toasted and ground fennel seeds mixed in with my salt. Really great. Feel free to add any seasoning you love in addition to some salt before baking. Enjoy.
Salt and Vinegar Oven Fries
inspired by Martha Stewart
2 cups of vinegar
1 lb. of waxy potatoes (yukon gold, red, white, purple or fingerling, just not russet)
2 T. olive oil
salt and pepper
Cut your potatoes into wedges, and place in a medium saucepan. Cover with vinegar and any additional water needed to cover the potatoes. Bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and let the potatoes cool in the liquid while you preheat the oven to 500 degrees.
When the oven is hot, remove the potatoes, draining all the liquid. Toss them with the oil or brush on and place on a baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper or anything else you can dream up. Bake about 10 minutes until golden and crispy.
