French Fries

Jyl.Ferris's picture
Cooking french fries from fresh potatoes tastes so much better than the frozen ones. You can even leave the skin on. Cutting the potatoes into circular slices is less challenging than the usual shape. Make sure your oil is properly heated before frying. I recommend using safflower or sunflower oil and don't reuse the oil, please. You can also watch the whole Fried Foods episode on this channel which includes fried chicken, fried tilapia and frizzled onions.

1. Heat a pan of oil on high.
2. Add the potatoes into the oil, one by one.
3. Cover the lid of the pan and let the french fries cook for about 10 minutes.
