Recipe by Sheila36

I found this recipe in the newspaper. These fries are very easy to make. They come out nice and crispy, and the slow cooking makes them absorb only about a tablespoon of oil per serving. I think the peanut oil is important, so I wouldn't use anything else.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 12 cups peanut oil
  • 2 lbs raw potatoes, cut into strips


  1. Pour oil into skillet but do not turn on the heat.
  2. Stir in the potatoes.
  3. Now turn on the heat to medium high and cook until golden brown, about 30 minutes.
  4. Drain on paper towels, and salt to taste.
