Ingredients

How to make it

  • Go ahead & preheat oven to 200 F or 100 C.
  • In a large Dutch oven heat oil to 320 F or 150 C.
  • Peel potatoes and, EVENLY cut fries into 1/4″ x 1/4″ strips of equal length. Place in a large bowl of cold water as you’re slicing.
  • Drain potatoes thoroughly, removing any excess water.
  • When oil reaches 320 degrees, submerge the potatoes in the oil. Working in small batches, fry for 2 to 3 minutes until they are pale and floppy. Remove from oil, drain, and cool to room temperature.
  • Increase the temperature of the oil to 375 F or 190 C.
  • Re-immerse fries and cook until crisp and golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove and drain on roasting rack. Season with salt & pepper. Once again this is done is small batches and will need to be kept warm in the oven until all potatoes are fried.
