    Heat oven to 425 F. You can peel taters or not...both ways work good. Put in cold water. Cut into strips....not to wide. Put on a towel to dry. Then put in a bowl. Sprinkle a tiny amount of oil , and mix them up. Dump all onto a cookie tray...spread out to one layer. Bake..turning once. Place on wire rack.with paper under the rack.
