  1. Using a sharp knife, cut the potatoes into 1/4″ sticks. I like to leave the skin on but you can peel them if you want.
  2. In a large pot or bowl, soak the cut potatoes in water overnight or for a minimum of 1 hour.
  3. Once the potatoes have soaked, strain off the water and dry the potatoes sticks with a tea towel or paper towel. The more water you can remove, the better they will cook.
  4. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  5. Once dried, toss the potatoes in olive oil to ensure they are evenly coated and season with sea salt.
  6. Place the potatoes on the baking sheet, spreading them out as evenly as possible.
  7. Transfer the pan to the oven and bake for 40 minutes, turning the fries once.
  8. At the end, I like to broil the potatoes for 2-3 minutes (depending on your oven) to help crisp them up a little more.
  9. Season with additional sea salt if needed.
  10. Serve warm and enjoy!
