    1. 1
      Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
    2. 2
      Blanch (boil) the potato strips in the water for 2 minutes.
    3. 3
      Remove the potato strips from the water and set aside.
    4. 4
      Meanwhile, heat about 2 inches of oil in a wok or a very VERY large saucepan to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
    5. 5
      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.
    6. 6
      Fry the potato strips, in small batches, for about 5 minutes or until golden brown.
    7. 7
      Drain on paper towels.
    8. 8
      Sprinkle with the seasoning salt as soon as they come out of the oil.
    9. 9
      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!
