French fries


  • 1.14 kilograms Yukon Gold, Idaho, or Russet potatoes
  • 6-7 cups (1.4-1.7 liters) vegetable oil
  • Salt


  1. Wash and scrub potatoes. Slice lengthwise into strips. 
  2. Line a baking tray or a large serving plate with paper towel.
  3. Heat oil to 275 F (135 C) in a heavy pot.
  4. Put potatoes in hot oil, then turn heat up to medium-high (you want the thermometer to read 375 F [190 C]). Cook for 18 minutes. Remove to paper towel-lined plate. Sprinkle with salt and serve.
