Hand-cut Skinny Fries


  • 1 pound Cold River Gold potatoes
  • 1⁄2 – 3 Tablespoons canola oil


You’ll need an air fryer for this one!

Cut potatoes into thin 2-inch strips. Soak cut potatoes in cold water with ice for 30 minutes (this will remove excess starch). Drain well, then pat with a paper towel until very dry.

Place oil and fries into a large mixing bowl and toss for equal distribution. Use at least 1⁄2 Tablespoon oil. For crispier fries, use more oil but do not exceed 3 Tablespoons.

Insert crisper plate in basket and put the basket in unit and preheat by selecting AIR FRY and setting to 390-degrees for 3 minutes.

After 3 minutes, add fries on the crisper plate and reinsert basket. Select AIR FRY, set temperature to 390-degrees, and set cook time to 25 minutes.

After 10 minutes, PAUSE cooking. Remove basket from unit and shake or toss fries, then reinsert basket and select continue cooking.

Check fries after 20 minutes. For crispier fries, continue cooking for up to 25 minutes.

When you are satisfied with the crispiness of the fries remove and salt and serve immediately.

For Fancier fries sprinkle fresh herbs after cooking and combine equal parts mayo and ketchup for a dipping sauce.
