Slice your potatoes into 8 identical wedge shapes. I discover this least challenging with the aid of way of cutting in half, location flat area down and slice these in half, then flip back and slice in half again.
Pop in a pot of chilly water with a nice pinch of salt and convey to boil for 3-4 minutes. You have to only just be capable to slice with a knife.

Quick 1 min demo!
a) Potatoes - Try and discover four even sized potatoes so all of the wedges pop out in uniform size. This is foremost so they prepare dinner at an even rate. I discover fluffy baking potatoes like Russets, King Edwards or Maris Pipers work great. I could keep away from waxy potatoes as they dangle on to too a lot moisture and will not get as fluffy.b) Steam - Allowing the wedges to sit when the steam is launched is an foremost step. After being parboiled they'll have taken on undesirable moisture. The steam is simply that undesirable moisture leaving the wedges. i.e fluffier insides! It's foremost to permit them to relaxation till they totally cease steaming.c) Spice - 1/4 tsp of Cayenne Pepper will supply a smooth kick of spice. Increase for further spice or take out all collectively if you'd favor without!d) Salt - I only use 1/2 tsp of salt within the seasoning simply due to the fact seasoning is at all times down to preference. However it is tough to 'taste test' as such when they are raw. Add further after they are cooked within the event you desire them saltier!e) Space - It's foremost to area the wedges aside within the oven. If they are too near they'll steam rather of bake, hence turning soggy within the process! Also foremost to flip so equally aspects of the wedges have identical time with direct touch at the hot tray.f) Cooking Times - they will fluctuate depending at the measurement of wedges you locate yourself with. Still flip after 15 mins and from there simply be vigilant throughout!g) Dipping Sauces - Check out mySour Cream and Chive dip and Homemade Blue Cheese Dip! Or do it the Aussie method and have one pot of sour cream and a moment pot of candy chilli sauce!h) Calories - Based sharing among four people, approx 8 wedges each.
