[Let’s talk about crispiness first. I soaked the potatoes for about 15 minutes before baking them. I read that this is supposed to help them crisp up when baked, and it did. They’re not super crunchy but they do have a crisp edge and a soft middle. I liked them just like that. I’ve baked them without soaking and they were much more soggy. So, don’t skip the soaking, unless you want limp potato wedges.]
