    I found this recipe yesterday on http://mobile.seriouseats.com and tried it tonight for supper. I made a few mistakes (mostly time and equipment related), and they still turned out pretty close! Oh yeah, don't let the vinegar scare you. You won't be able to taste it. I promise.

      These were delicious. I made them as a once a month cooking dish and they work great for freezing! At 3-1/2 minutes they do look like McDonald's fries, light in color. We like ours a little darker, so I went another 2 minutes. Perfect!

      I was pleasantly surprised at how tender and crispy these french fries were. I doubled the recipe with no problems. I will definitely make these again. I cannot wait to try the OAMC version.
