The BEST French fries ever
- French fries
- 6 Medium potatoes
- 1 cooking oil
- 1 salt
- 1 Ketchup and mayonnaise
Peel the potatoes
Cut the potatoes into quarter inch strips to look like French fries. You can cut them in the length and size you prefer.
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.
After 2 Hours drain the French fries and dry them with a cloth.
Heat the cooking oil to 275°F.
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.
After they have cooled down take the fries out of the freezer and heat oil to 375°F.
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.
