How to Cook Delicious Home Made French Fries
If you have only eaten french fries at the restaurant, you can make them at home easily, and they will be fresh and delicious. And your home made french fries will taste like the real thing.
Whole Potatoes (2-3 potatoes per serving)
Canola Oil (or other vegetable oil)
Step 1: Heat the oil in a deep fryer or frying pan to 325 degrees. Caution, if the oil starts to smoke or catches fire, immediately cover the pan and turn off the source of heat. Never pour water on an oil fire.
Step 2: Cut the potatoes lengthwise into narrow strips resembling french fries. To optimize efficiency, cut the potatoes into narrow slivers, then stack the slivers on top of each other to cut again into narrow strips. The more narrow the strips, the fast the fries will cook and the tastier they will be. In my opinion the fries taste better with the skin on them, but if you want skin less fries, you can peel the potatoes beforehand.
Step 3: Carefully place the fries in the hot oil and cook 5-10 minutes, or until slightly golden brown.
Step 4: Turn off the oil, take the fries out, strain out the oil, sprinkle some salt on the fries, and enjoy!
