Make your own Fries~

You really can make your own French Fries- We arrived in the country last night after a crazy day of apartment showings, multiple negotiations and putting out 2 fires on two deals!

My mother in law wanted burgers and fries for dinner, all from scratch. The burgers are easy, buy. Ground beef that is 80% ground meat and 20% fat.
Pan sear the burgers or throw them on the grill until your desired temperature and serve on a crispy English Muffin with sliced red onion, tons of Ketchup, melted cheese and crisp spicy pickles.

The French Fries are the tough part! Honestly, if you can make fries from scratch, you are better than 90% of the professional cooks and chefs out there, cause they can’t do it.

Ingredients

  • 6 peeled idaho potatoes
  • 2 quarts vegetable oil
  • Salt and Pepper

Method

  • Place the two quarts oil in a large pot and preheat.
  • Cut potatoes into french fries 1/4″X1/4″ X 1-2″
  • Place cut potatoes into cold water to remove as much starch as possible.
  • Remove potatoes from the water and dry with paper towels.
  • Place cut potatoes in the preheated oil- around 180 degrees and blanch the fries for about 4 minutes or until tender.
  • The oil will bubble ,but not turn brown. You are essentially boiling the potatoes in oil, instead of water.
  • Remove the potatoes from the oil-
  • The best way to remove them is with a tool called a spider.
  • Place blanched potatoes on a cookie tray that is lined with paper towels. Sprinkle blanched potatoes with sea salt and pepper.
  • Let the potatoes cool in the fridge.
  • Reheat the oil to about 325 degrees and place blanched fries back in the oil. Fry until crispy.
  • Remove the crisp fries from the oil. Season again with salt and pepper and serve.

You can also add, prior to serving the fries:

  • Grated Parmesan
  • Grated Cheddar Cheese
  • Cayenne Pepper

Enjoy!
