    Kennebecs were all my family raised too, and they are starchy and dry fleshed for sure.

    When I started gardening I would always plant a few red Pontiacs as well. The Pontiacs started growing on us as a favorite to. Now I plant equal amounts of both. The Pontiacs, and red skinned taters in general have a waxy flesh that holds up well in soups, and tater salad. I always hated tater salad that looked like mush, or the disappearing taters in vegetable soup. The Pontiacs will remain in chunks in both.

    I read somewhere that the oil not only cooks the fries, but forms a pellicle holding the moisture in for the second frying. They said boiling fries in water didn't do that resulting in a mushy end product.

    My family grew a lot of the Cobbler variety of potatoes. Dad preferred them to kennebecs

    Glad you asked. I started to ask, but I figured I was the only guy on here who didn't know.
    Sounds like it would be a good trick.
