The BEST French fries ever

6 servings

2 hours 5 mins

Ingredients

  1. French fries
  2. 6 Medium potatoes
  3. 1 cooking oil
  4. 1 salt
  5. 1 Ketchup and mayonnaise

Steps

  1. 1
    Peel the potatoes
  2. 2
    Cut the potatoes into quarter inch strips to look like French fries. You can cut them in the length and size you prefer.
  3. 3
    1/4" strips
  4. 4
    Put the potatoes in cold water and let them sit for 2 hours. Changing the water after 1 hour. This step is critical because it gets the starch out of the potato. It makes for great French fries.
  5. 5
    After 2 Hours drain the French fries and dry them with a cloth.
  6. 6
    Heat the cooking oil to 275°F.
  7. 7
    Cook the fries in batches for 2-3 minutes or until they start to turn white. Don't over cook them. Take out of the pan and place on a paper towel lined cookie sheet and put into the freezer to cool off and stop the cooking. About 5 to 7 minutes.
  8. 8
    After they have cooled down take the fries out of the freezer and heat oil to 375°F.
  9. 9
    Once the oil is heated cook the fries until golden brown, about 4 to 5 minutes. Right after they are taken out of the oil salt to taste.
