Homemade French Fries
Peel and cut potatoes into long strips. You can buy a fry cutter to
make this job easier. I usually cut one medium potato per person.
Heat deep fryer or a large pot of oil to 375 degrees, a thermometer
will help this process.
Pat dry with a paper towel.
When oil is heated place fries in a cooker about 5 minutes. Don't
overload the oil, you'll have to do this in batches.
Take fries out with metal slotted spoon or drain rack. Place on a
cookie sheet or plate lined with fresh paper towels. Allow to cool
while you finish the remaining fries.
When you've done all the potato fries, you will fry
a 2nd time until they are golden brown. Place on clean
paper towels and season with salt or seasoning salt.
