You will need permission or assistance to use a big heavy knife to cut the potatoes into wedges. You will need to buy big potatoes. Weigh them on the scale in the produce department to be sure you are getting the right size and that they are pretty even in size and shape. You will need about 15 min. for preparation and 30 min. for the fries to cook.
