Perfect French Fries

These french fries are homemade with lots of love and deserve the title "perfect"

I've been trying to find the right way to do homemade fries for a long time. I love to use my deep fryer because I like my fries to have some crunch to them. Homemade fries for me are often not crunchy at all. I decided to try out this method from Bobby Flay's cookbook, Burgers, Fries, & Shakes, and see if it was what I was looking for. What I like about this recipe is that you don't have to peel the potatoes. I love potato skins and that's also less work in the long run. It is, however, a process. A lengthy process that requires making a mess. I think in the end it is worth it though because these fries are definitely the best homemade fries I've ever had.

What you need:
  • 4 large russet potatoes
  • 1 quart peanut or vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Peel potatoes or scrub if leaving the skin on. Slice potatoes into 1/4-inch fries and place in a large bowl of water.
  2. Refrigerate for 1 to 8 hours.
  3. Drain well and pat dry with paper towel in batches.
  4. Fry, in batches, in preheated 325 degree oil - in a stockpot or deep fryer, for about 3 to 4 minutes or until a pale blond color. Place on a paper towel-lined baking sheet or plate.
  5. Then increase heat to 375 degrees and fry potatoes again for about 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Remove to a paper-towel lined baking sheet or plate and season immediately.
