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.
- 2 1⁄2 cups peanut oil
- 2 lbs raw potatoes, cut into strips
- Pour oil into skillet but do not turn on the heat.
- Stir in the potatoes.
- Now turn on the heat to medium high and cook until golden brown, about 30 minutes.
- Drain on paper towels, and salt to taste.
