For the April Harvest of the Month, we taste tested local potatoes from Szawlowski Farms in Hatfield, MA. The potatoes were coated with olive oil and Sazón seasoning, and then roasted to create crisp, colorful, and flavorful french fries. We get our french fries precut, but you can cut your own at home, or use Sazón to flavor home fries, baked potatoes, smashed potatoes, hash browns, and the list goes on!
To make these fries (or whatever potato shape/form floats your boat), coat your potatoes with olive oil and Sazón until potatoes take a reddish tone. Then spread the potatoes on a greased baking sheet and roast in the oven at 400 degrees for approximately 25 minutes. Check the potatoes after 15 minutes and stir them around to make sure that they cook evenly and don't stick to the pan. You can add even more Sazón at this step if you want :) Then put your potatoes back in the oven and baked for another 10 minutes until golden brown. Enjoy!
Students voted on the taste test by dropping a slip of paper in the bucket that corresponded to their opinion of the fries. The final results: 24 disliked, 34 liked, and 174 LOVED the fries!!
