In the olden days, I used to buy the imported pack of potato fries that are ready to cook. But when my husband called my attention that it is expensive, it got me thinking. For the same weight of frozen potato fries, the fresh potatoes cost less than half. Naturally, my husband exclaimed, because that frozen stuff is imported. And he was right on that. So even if it laborious to peel the potatoes and cut into strips, we have to make an effort in exchange for the savings that we get. And not only that, the fresh potatoes from the market is real fresh and no preservative.
