Perfect Crispy Oven Fries - How to Make Homemade Baked French Fries

Everyone has their favorite type of French fry. Mine is a crispy on the outside and soft in the middle. I don’t like full crunch, just enough so you know there is great texture. I happened to be watching a video review on a commercial fry cutter and the main person said that soaking the potatoes in water before cooking helps oven baked fries get crispy. That sentence stuck with me for about 3 years. After I heard that of course I needed to try it. I soaked the fries for 6 hours and then dried them and let them sit out for about an hour so that as much of the moisture as possible was gone. Let me tell you those homemade fries were worth the effort and the wait. After remaking the recipe a few times, I realized that I could in fact reduce the soaking time if I were in a rush. An hour is enough time to get a lot of that starch pulled out and help achieve that crisp crunchy outside that I’m looking for.
