Kenji's Ultra-Crispy Roast Potatoes = Legit Oven Fries

Sometimes you just don't feel like getting a pot of oil going or want your house to smell like a fry shack for a week, but you still want some French fries. Last night was one of those as I had a few pounds of local mussels and what better way to sop up all the leftover mussely goodness than French fries. I figured Kenji's Ultra-Crispy Roast Potatoes recipe could probably produce some decent oven fries so I cut my potatoes up into fries and used the same technique. I must say they came out great! Better than many a fry I've had fried the traditional way. The parboil w/ vinegar + duck fat seems to be the trick. I have a feeling we will be enjoying fries at home more often. Thanks Kenji, now oven fries don't have to suck!
