  5. Cut each potato lengthwise into wedges of roughly equal size. Place into a large bowl.
  6. Toss potato wedges with oil.
  7. For the spicy option: add garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, salt and pepper to the oil before tossing to coat all sides.

Tips

  • Wash potatoes well under cool running water. Use a brush or scrubber to remove any dirt. Rinse and drain.
  • Store potatoes in a cool, dark, well ventilated space for use within two weeks.
  • For crispy fries, cook wedges on a rack over the baking sheet. No need to turn fries half way through cooking.
  • Try different spices to ramp up the flavors.
