Easy Homemade French Fries

Ingredients
  Idaho potatoes 2
  Canola oil/Or vegetable oil 1 Liter
  Sea salt 3 Teaspoon
Directions

GETTING READY
1. Thoroughly scrub the potatoes and leave skin on or peel the potatoes.
2. Cut a piece off one end of the potato so that it will fit flatly on a cutting board.
3. With a sharp paring knife, cut potato into 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch slices.
4. Then, lay flat on the cutting board and cut into strips. Cut evenly as possible for even cooking time.
5. Place in a bowl of cold water for a while.
6. Drain and place back in a bowl in the freezer for about 30 minutes.

MAKING
7. Using a heavy bottom deep pot, skillet, or electric fryer, pour in fresh canola or vegetable oil.
Always be careful to leave 2-4 inches from the top to leave room for the oil to bubble up.
8. Once the oil is properly heated, carefully drop the sliced up potato into the oil.
Be careful not to overcrowd the pan. Potatoes should freely move around.
9. Potatoes should be golden brown and probably will be floating to the top of the oil.
Remove with a slotted spoon and drain excess oil on layers of paper towels.

SERVING
10. Sprinkle some sea salt on top. You can serve this as a side dish with some burgers or with baked beans.

Hi Cajuncookingtv, how are you? Could you please tell me what is the composition of creole seasoning? Does it contain black pepper and spices as well ??

Hi Beryl, Your homemade French fries look superb ! They are so simple to make. I'd like to try these with normal salt and pepper seasonings in case I don't find creole seasoning.
