Homemade french fries are very easy to make very easy to get wrong if it’s not done properly. For a crispy fries and to reduce the starch you need to soak the potatoes in a bowl of cold water then pat dry the potatoes if the potatoes are not dry and allow the oil to be hot. If these steps are done properly you will end up with fluffy, crispy, and hot fries, if not expect soggy fries, I know no one wants that! If they’re not done properly you will end up with soggy fries. Potatoes have a good amount of Fiber, Potassium, and Vitamin C. Fry your fries as crispy as want I have a double fried fries you might want to check it out here French Fries
Let’s get started!
- Russet Potatoes or your choice
- Oil for frying
- Peel the potatoes, just scrub and make sure they’re clean.
- Cut into half (lengthwise)
- Then pick one at to cut into half again, then cut into pieces, to the size or thickness of your choice. Then repeat the process until you’re done with potatoes.
- Soak the potatoes in a bowl of cold water for as long as you can but for the minimum of 30 minutes to remove starch, it also helps with the crispiness of the fries.
Pat dry the potatoes, you can use paper towels to get as much moisture out of the potatoes as possible.
- Heat oil in a fryer or a skillet over medium-high heat.
- You can fry in batches, add the potatoes and fry for about 5 minutes or until golden brown and crispy to your preference.
Drain on lined paper towels and sprinkle salt over the fries immediately, I like some black pepper on mine.
Serve and enjoy!
