I thought I'd try this method for French fries. Never heard of the sugar trick before! I know salt does the same thing as well. The sugar did release some liquid after 30 minutes, and I decided to rinse the potatoes off and dry over paper towels. A 1/4 cup of olive oil sounded like way too much, and I didn't want the potatoes burnt so I used a Tbsp. of canola oil and a Tbsp. of olive oil. I also left off the salt until after baking as the salt can make the potatoes soggy in the oven. So I sprinkled them with sea salt right out of the oven. I have a good quality heavy bottomed sheet pan and these baked for 15 minutes on one side, 10 on the other and they were perfectly cooked. Everyone loved them!
