American Fries

3 to 4 large baking potatoes or 6 to 8 small heirloom varieties

3 to 4 tbsp olive oil (not extra-virgin!) or melted coconut oil

Sea salt and pepper to taste

 

*Use organic ingredients whenever possible.

 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

 

Scrub potatoes and dry on a tea towel. Using a mandolin slicer, slice potatoes 1/4 inch thick, width-wise, into rounds. Alternatively, slice potatoes using a sharp knife as thin as possible. Arrange in a single layer on two  baking sheets, that can fit in the oven side-by-side.


Brush the oil over each round, salt and pepper to taste, then flip the rounds over and repeat on the other side.

 

Place the baking sheets in the oven and bake for 30 minutes, turning once, halfway.

Serve immediately and store any leftovers in the fridge. These fries are even great cold the next day for lunch!
