2 12-oz russet potatoes
salt and pepper to taste
vegetable oil as needed for frying

1    Peel and wash the potatoes. Cut lengthwise into 8 wedges.

2    Parboil the potatoes in boiling salted water for 3 to 5 minutes. Drain, cool, and dry. Set aside until needed.

3    Fry the potatoes in a 350°F fryer in 2 steps. First, let the potatoes get soft and form a skin. Remove them from the oil. Let the temperature of the oil recuperate. Second, shake the basket, place the potatoes back into the hot oil, and let the potatoes get golden brown and crisp.

4    Drain the potatoes on paper towels and season with salt and pepper.
