how to make the best homemade fries


My husband made these homemade fries for us last week.  They were AMAZING!  Crispy on the outside and melt-in-your-mouth soft on the inside.  The secret: the directions.  The ingredients are pretty standard, white-skinned potatoes, canola oil and salt.  Here shared his method here:

Best Homemade Fries
by Mr. A

Cut up your potatoes into wedges (half inch thick), then boil them until they are almost fully cooked (fork tender but not too soft).  Then you have to fry them.  I used canola oil.  You need quite a bit in the pan, about 1/8 of an inch thick.  Fry the potatoes for about 3 or 4 minutes per side.  You have to watch them closely because it seems like they brown up suddenly, at which time you need to flip them.  Don't put too many in the pan because it will make it harder to access them.  When they are done, put them aside and sprinkle with sea salt (or regular table salt) to taste.  Serve immediately.

Enjoy!
