DIRECTIONS

  • Cut fries as desired.
  • Soak COVERED with cold water for 2-3 hrs (more won't hurt - this dispenses with the starch that keeps them from browning nicely).
  • Blot dry.
  • First fry - in batches AT *300* degrees until just tender (yes, this is a lower temp than you would think).
  • When all are done with first fry, toss gently, but well, with seasonings.
  • Second fry - Increase oil temp to *400* degrees, frying until golden & beautiful.
  • ALTERNATIVE TO FRYING:
  • In boiling water, place fries in & boil 3 minutes - no longer!
  • Set aside to cool, toss with seasonings.
  • On baking sheet sprayed with light mist of oil, place potatoes so they are not touching each other.
  • Spray them lightly with oil.
  • Bake in preheated 450 degree oven for 18 - 24 minutes until golden & crunchy.
