oven fries perfected

Oven fries are a lot like regular fries except you don't have to bother with deep frying. The secret to truly crisp oven fries is rinsing and soaking the potatoes in icy water to rinse the starch away. I resisted this step for a long time and had soggy potatoes as a result. Learn from my mistakes.

To accompany the perfect fries we had a classic hamburger dinner with great late spring ingredients. Piled atop the burger were grilled ramps, roasted mushrooms, Mill Creek Dairy sweet dill pickles, cheddar, and, of course, Dukes mayonnaise. We also had a spinach salad with a balsamic vinaigrette and spring onions. I am really enjoying all the bright, grassy greens of the season.
