I haven't tried this, but I think that I'm going to try it this weekend. I can't wait until my subscription to Cook's Illustrated starts - I've never had something from CI turn out badly.


I read this and then made them for dinner tonight. Perfect. My husband called them the best homemade fries he's ever eaten. Love Cook's Illustrated. Thanks for sharing!


Christy, I'm with you. I definitely trust CI!

Molly, That's awesome! This made my morning. So glad you and your husband liked them!

Shapes? You cut them into shapes first? What shapes? Elephants? Sailboats? Do some shapes work better than others? I would think that 'lifesaver' shape would work great. But then you have that whole doughnuts hole issue to deal with.

BTW, communist jokes never get old. So these two communists were sitting in a bar....

Do you blanch them and THEN put them in the pot to boil? Or does blanching skip that step??


Hi Jenn,
Thanks for stopping by!
The blanching and the boiling are the same thing.
If you click on the link to the recipe it will give you specific step by step instructions.
Hope this helps!

Where's the link for recipe?!?! Thanks


Hi Val,
Right under the picture, the word "recipe" is bolded, and that's the link.

And just in case: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/member/views/COOKS-ILLUSTRATED-CRISP-ROASTED-POTATOES-50076878
