Tips Before You Make Salt and Vinegar Potatoes

  • use only white vinegar for best results
  • to keep crunchy when fried substitute white vinegar for vinegar powder or mustard powder
  • any time I make these potatoes I put the cut pieces in white vinegar to remove the starch this really helps to crisp the outsides 
  • use white or pink coarse salt
  • dried herbs or fresh herbs can enhance the flavor
  • chopped fresh dill for twice baked is a nice twist in flavor
  • for spicy add cayenne pepper
  • use a good grade extra virgin light olive oil
  • pour the dressing on the potatoes while still hot 
  • there are several cooking methods to choose from in the recipe card
  • for the crunchy style potatoes, we recommend pan or air frying
  • use russet potatoes for best results when baking, air-fried or pan-fried
  • twice baked potatoes can be chunky or creamy
