I can't think of many meals that I don't use salt with, but a family favorite are baked fries. I usually do this with sweet potatoes, but I used regular ones for this recipe.
- 3-4 large Russet Potatoes(I don't peel them-simply wash and cut into 1/4 inch strips)
- Nonstick Cooking Spray
- 2-3 tablespoons Olive Oil(you can use vegetable oil)
- coarse salt and ground pepper to taste
Cover the potatoes with water and refrigerate for about 3 hours. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and lightly coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Drain the potatoes and dry with a paper towel. Toss potatoes in a bowl with the oil and salt/pepper. Bake for about 45 minutes. We don't like ours too crisp so I take them out shortly after they are soft. This makes more than enough for my family of 4.
Salt can also be used for more things than just cooking. People use it for things like freshening flowers and relieving stings. Morton is actually having a contest that runs until January 10th. All readers need to do is upload a picture and brief description of their secret use or tip for using Morton Salt.
