ROSEMARY IN THE HOUSEMany of you know, I have a deep love for ROSEMARY and I use this herb frequently in my cooking and enjoy its beauty in my garden. If you don’t have a rosemary plant in your garden, I highly recommend you get one and get it planted. You can read more about it HERE.

The SECRET in getting a crisp fry is soaking the potatoes in water and cooking at a high temperature. Potatoes have a lot of starch and for extra crispy french fries, you need to remove some of that starch. You can do so by soaking the cut potatoes in water.
