Crispy French Fries

I’ve been experimenting with new methods for making French fries.

This recipe makes French fries for two or three people.


3 medium russet potatoes

Oil for cooking


Peel the potatoes and soak them in water for a few minutes.

While the potatoes soak, add some oil to a skillet and bring it up to medium heat.

Slice the potatoes into 1/4 or 1/2 inch sticks.

Soak the potatoes in clean, cold water for 5 minutes.  The water should become murky from  the starch in the potatoes. 

Strain the potatoes and soak them again in fresh, cold water.  After 5 minutes, strain the potatoes in a colander and allow the potatoes to air dry for a minute or two.

Add the potatoes to the oil.  Let the potatoes fry for at least one minute before adjusting them.  Stir occasionally and fry until the potatoes are golden brown.

Strain and sprinkle with salt or seasoning.

Serve hot.
