Potato Wedges

Thinking of making potato wedges? Nothing to it right? Not quite, you can certainly cut up some spuds, oil them and toss them in the oven but this isn’t going to result in a nice crispy wedge, in order to achieve that you need to remove the starch from the potato first, to do this simply scrub, cut and soak, it’s not difficult but it does mean a bit of planning ahead, trust me on this though, it’s so worth it!
