I cut them by hand as well. The extra time it takes to double fry them is totally worth it. My sister said they were the best fries she ever had, and I tend to agree. I don't have a deep fry thermometer so for the first round I used medium high heat and removed the fries when they just started to color. The second round I used high heat and removed then when they were golden brown. Seasoned with kosher salt. Excellent fries! Thanks Meanie.

This is how I have been making fries for years. I leave the skin on and hand cut them but other than that it's the same thing.

Thank you for a go-to french fry recipe!!! I've searched for a very long time. This is it! Something that can be done in time for that spur of the moment decision to have french fries, GREAT fries!!!

Love the crunchiness of these fries. Just like we like them! When I poured on some malt vinegar they didn't get mushy because they were nice and crisp!

Really good. The best homemade fries I've ever made. A lot of effort though especially without a fry cutter but I would make them this way again if I was looking for authentic French fries. I used canola oil to fry them in a pot. Thanks.

Great fries! I also hand cut the potatoes and used an electric deep fryer. Times were right on and the fries were light golden brown and crispy. I drained them on a rack instead of the paper bag. Thanks for sharing!
