We know it sounds crazy, but these homemade fries really are light. Shared by Margaret Taylor of Salem, Missouri, they offer a surprisingly crisp texture and a flavor you'll both enjoy.

"These are simple to make. they don't come out super crispy but my family is OK with that. I soak them the night before when I know dinner time is going to be busy that night."

"I have made these several times and really like it. It takes some time to prepare since the potatoes have to soak in the fridge for an hour, but it's great to be able to have "healthy" fries with our meals. Sometimes instead of salt I like to use other seasonings to give it a bit of a kick!"

"I've made this recipe twice now and they've been a hit with my guests. It was very easy to prepare. It goes great with French dip sandwiches! Thanks for the great recipe!

P.S. I kept the skins on my potatoes- taste great this way, too!"
