Homemade Oven Fries with Perfect Ketchup

Ketchup and Fries are a match made in heaven. A classic combo like Salt & Pepper, Peanut Butter & Jelly, Cookies & Cream. Sometimes they are great for each other, but not so great for us...at least not every day great. More like special occasion great! 
At Halo+Cleaver, we are all about making choices - sometimes small - that add up to healthier eating. Don't deep fry your potatoes - try oven baking. Don't choose a ketchup that is crammed full of high fructose corn syrup. Try one that has absolutely no sugar added! 

The Perfect Ketchup 

With more tomatoes than you can count, zero added sugar, a touch of sweetness from green bananas and apples, we are sure you will fall for this good-for-you & tastes-so-good ketchup. We eat it too, so we care very much about what is in the bottle. Everything on the label and in the jar is something you can pronounce that will be familiar. That's our promise - great tasting Perfect Ketchup with no sneaky additives.

How to Make Crispy Oven Fries

One simple trick that will get you crave-able oven fries cooked through to crispy perfection is to first soak your fries in cold water for 10 minutes. Then simply lift them out, leaving the starch behind, and layer between paper towels to dry well.

This lets the oil-tossed potatoes cook evenly in the oven and gives them a uniform golden glow, rendering them both tender and achieving maximum crispness. 

Make Mealtime into Playtime

Every busy cook can use a little help, right? How about enlisting the tiny hands in the kitchen into rosemary duty? With a little help, this can be a fun project and you'll start to build culinary literacy as you engage the family into meal prep. 

Simply take a sprig of rosemary between the tines of a fork and pull the fork down the stem toward the root-end of the sprig. All those little leaves will fall right off! You'll still need to give them a quick chop yourself to mince, but in the meantime you've no doubt peaked some kitchen curiosity.
