    1pp per 50g weight raw potato. I usually use around 200g for a few wedges on the side of my dinner if I'm craving it... yum.

    I weigh them after I've peeled them (assuming you're gonna peel them) because then I'm making sure I have my weights right ;). A tsp of oil over them is nice if you can bear to count the pp for it... or just use frylight spray lol! I make spicy wedges by putting some "all-season" spice mix over them too... mmm... craving carby wedges now :p x

    Yes I parboil them for about 10 minutes usually, drain them and put a sprinkle of cayenne pepper on and a little salt and a spray of oil and leave for about 25 mins, turn them during this time and they are lovely.
