Homemade Fries

We've been eating homemade fries for a few years and they were good but inconsistent. Sometimes they would be nice and crispy, other times more like slices of baked potatoes. Recently though, after some more intentional experimenting we've found our ideal Homemade Fries recipe.
The most important step is making sure when you cut the wedges that there is enough skin on each wedge for it to balance nicely. That way, when it's time to serve your flavorful homemade fries they're easy to remove from the pan. {I used to have to scrape and scrape them off the pan, no matter how well greased it was so this is very important to me!}
