**Note: If you are a label reader, be sure to check labels for “organic” products. Although they are organic and are found in the health food sections, they often contain preservatives and additives. The fries I used tonight do not contain preservatives or additives. It says on the bag that it contains “apple juice to maintain color”! Cool!
