These french fries are simply the best. Why? Because they just are!
- 907.18 g baking potatoes, cut into 1/2 inch thick, cubed strips
- canola oil (for frying)
- seasoning salt
- Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
- Blanch (boil) the potato strips in the water for 2 minutes.
- Remove the potato strips from the water and set aside.
- Meanwhile, heat about 2 inches of oil in a wok or a very VERY large saucepan to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- CAUTION: Do not fill your pan even close to the top; your oil will expand during cooking and will catch fire if it pours out.
- Fry the potato strips, in small batches, for about 5 minutes or until golden brown.
- Drain on paper towels.
- Sprinkle with the seasoning salt as soon as they come out of the oil.
- Cooking Tip: You can keep your cooked batches of fries hot while you are still frying the others by putting them in a preheated 250 degree Fahrenheit oven.
Very YUMMY!! My family worships me now!!!! I had to make fries 2 days in a row. I also cut them thinner than in the picture, but they turned out pretty and tasty. I also had a box bottom I was going to throw out that day, but instead I lined it with paper towels and then drained the fries on it. After we ate the fries I threw the box and paper towels away making for easier clean up!
delish! i cut them into smaller strips than the picture, but the turned out great.
they look bad but tast great
