These are good and easy to make. We don't eat french fries much but I was in the mood for some. I followed the recipe as written and we all enjoyed them. Made for Spring PAC 2011.

  1. Bring large pot of salted water to boil.
  2. Cut a potatoe into 1/4 inch thick slices and lengthwise into 1/4 inch wide sticks.
  3. Cook in boiling water for 3 - 4 minutes.
  4. Use slotted spoon and carefully remove to sheet pan with rack to drain. Repeat with remaining potatoes.
  5. Leave potatoes to drain and dry. This step can be done up to 4 hours ahead. Let stand at room temperature.

  7. Working in batches fry potatoes until golden, about 6 minutes.
  8. Sprinkle with salt and pepper before serving.
