Although I prefer them in the oven and no one is going to convince me the fried ones taste better, someone on my local foodies group gave me this information and I thought it was interesting. Enjoy!
There are a few factors that go into making a perfect fry:
Perfect Fry Factor #1: The exterior must be very crisp, but not tough.
Perfect Fry Factor #2: The interior must be intact, fluffy, and have a strong potato flavor.
Perfect Fry Factor #3: The fry must be an even, light golden blond
Perfect Fry Factor #4: The fry must stay crisp and tasty for at least as long as it takes to eat a full serving.
