Let raw potatoes stand in cold water for at least a half-hour before frying in order to improve the crispness of French-fried potatoes. Dry potatoes thoroughly before adding to oil. By Peggy
Lightly sprinkle with sugar when frying fresh peeled potatoes to get a nice crust on them.
Wash the potatoes before you peel, removing any scarred or spoiled spots, eyes, sprouts, & the like. Then peel the potatoes and save the skins for frying.
