There are few steps, but the result worth it.

Simply best baked potato "fries"


Potatoes, organic - 2 pounds, skins on, cut to wedges (half and then half each piece again)
Olive oil - 2 table spoons
Sea salt - to taste
Spices - to taste


Begin by heating the oven to 400F. In a large pot, boil about 5 quarts of water, adding salt as for cooking pasta, about 2 tea spoons. Prepare a cookie sheet or baking dish, lined with parchment paper. Brush the paper with olive oil. When the water is boiling, add the potatoes and cook for 5-10 minutes, just till they start to soften. Drain the water. The potatoes will dry out, since they are so hot. Place the potatoes in one layer onto the cookie sheet. Brush with olive oil. Sprinkle with sea salt. Add spices of your choice, if desired. Good match might be rosemary, oregano, chili flakes. Bake for about 20 minutes until golden. Serve immediately.
