Making perfect French Fries takes a little long than just frying up some cut potato, but it is well worth the effort.
Ingredients
  • Potatoes
  • Boiling kettle water
  • Oil for frying
Instructions
  1. Peel and cut the potatoes into fries of anything from 4mm matchstick fries to 12mm fries.
  2. Place the fries in a heatproof bowl and pour boiling water over the potatoes. Allow this to stand for 15 minutes.
  3. Drain the fries and pat them dry thoroughly.
  4. Heat your oil to 160c or 310f and fry the potato for 2 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove the fries from the oil and transfer them to a large platter to cool. Allow them to cool for 5 minutes.
  5. At this stage you can freeze the fries or refrigerate the fries for processing later.
  6. Once the fries have cooled, reheat your oil to 190c or 375f and fry the chips for a further 3 minutes until crisp.
  7. Due to the blanching process in the beginning the fries will not turn the muddy brown color so often seen. Instead they will maintain a beautiful creamy golden color.
