If French fries are your families’ favorites, cutting them has never been simpler. A French fry cutter is specially designed to cut even strips of potato that will cook quickly.
5 russet potatoes, peeled and cut
3 cups canola oil
Kosher salt to taste
For best results when making homemade French fries, keep the potatoes in a bowl of ice water until you are ready to fry them.
Heat oil to 350 degrees F in a large heavy pot. Remove potatoes from ice water and pat dry on paper towels. Fry in batches for 10 minutes until they are just cooked through. Remove from the oil and allow them to cool for a few minutes.
Bring the oil back to 350 degrees and deep fry the fries for 10 minutes or until golden. This double frying method gives you thoroughly cooked fries that are tender and not burnt.
Remove fries and drain on cooling racks over paper towel. Sprinkle with kosher salt and serve immediately.
