There are so many recipes for the perfect baked potatoes and the truth is that I have already tried several of them with some variations and additions of my own. These crispy baked potatoes, however, are as if they came from another planet!


And if you try them you will not want to eat them otherwise. The reason they become so crunchy even though they are baked in the oven is a "frozen" trick that simply transforms them.

What do I mean? Once you cut them, put them in a bowl with cold water and ice cubes and leave them there for 25-30 minutes. Then take them out of the ice and wipe them well with a towel so that they have no water on them. You will see the rest below in the recipe…


But why would we put them on ice?

In this way, a part of the potato starch is removed, as a result of which they do not stick together during baking and eventually become much crispier.
