Sea Salt and Rosemary French Fries With Quick Honey Mustard

I grew up in a small country town in West Virginia. We had to drive a good way to get an order of fries, so the only time I got to feast on a carton of salty,  oily fries was when we traveled for vacation.

The day came when I move to the “big city” I mean…..fast food everywhere! Though I ate pretty healthy, I had my fair share.

Throughout the years we eliminated more and more bad food for our diet, and the time came when I had to wean my kids from fast food fries.  Did they eat them all the time, no, but I wanted to erase them from their memory.

I made fries for the first time and they were an instant hit! Who wouldn’t like crispy fries with the touch of sea salt and a hint of rosemary?

I think we discount the  potato from the healthy list, but they are rich in vitamins, help prevent kidney stones, high in fiber, and reduce inflammation to name a few! Be sure to buy organic potatoes because pesticides in the soil absorb into the flesh making it hard to wash off. It’s worth the little extra money for a good potato, and worth a little of your time to make these!
