Roasted Rosemary French Fries

French fries are really only good when they're crunchy and usually the only way to make them crunchy involves frying them (twice actually).  
Problem is, I am slightly afraid of heating up oil on the stove and I don't have a deep fryer.  In the past when I've put a big pot of oil on the stove, I haven't gotten to it early enough and before I know it, the house is full of smoke, alarms are going off, and I can't breathe. 
I know I could put a thermometer in the pot avoid this whole situation, but instead I opted for roasting my french fries and luckily, they ended up even crunchier than the fried version!

Recipe slightly adapted from Gwyneth Paltrow
4-5 potatoes
2 Tbsp. olive oil
coarse sea salt
dried rosemary

1.  Slice potatoes and soak in cold water for 5-10 minutes.

2.  Toss potatoes with olive oil.  Sprinkle with salt and rosemary.

3.  Roast for 30-40 minutes at 450˚, flipping every ten minutes.
