God’s gift to the culinary world has to be french fries. They are probably my favorite potato form to exist, thought it is hard to choose. You can make these beauties at home and trust me you will want to make them over and over.
- Frying oil, pick your poison, veggie, castor, peanut whatever you like.
- You’ll also need: lots of paper towels
Let’s Get Frying
Wash the potatoes, peel them if you please.
Cut off the two ends of the potato, then the sides, making it almost like a box. From there cut the longer side cut into about 1/4-in thick slices. Cut these slices again into little potato sticks
Place the potato sticks into ice water for at least 5 min to get the starches off.
Heat the frying oil to about 325F [This is round 1], while this is heating up lay out paper towels and dry off the potato sticks. Making sure these bad boys are dry before dropping them into the fryer.
In small batches, drop some potato sticks into the oil, don’t let them get brown, let them go for about 5 minutes and then remove with a metal slotted spoon and place on a paper towel. Continue this until all fries are done.
REMEMBER BE CAREFUL THIS IS HOT OIL WE ARE TALKING ABOUT
Now for round 2: Crank up the oil now to about 375F and start with small batches again. This time you’re going to want to them to brown, this will be for about 3 minutes or more. Again, continue this until all the fries are golden brown and crispy, trust me you’ll know when it’s right. Remove from the oil when you think they are done and place them on paper towels to remove excess oil.
Once all fries are done, place in a bowl & sprinkle with salt & whatever other goodies you like.
Trust me this is the only recipe I use for french fries & it goes perfectly with the Bob’s Burgers recipes on my blog! *Wink Wink Nudge Nudge, Chèvre Which Way but Loose Burger & Do the Brussel* It also makes it better knowing you know all the ingredients in your french fries.
Made with Love,
