1. Peel, rinse and cut
Peel and rinse the potatoes. Then cut them into sticks or wedges if you prefer.
Place them in a large bowl and cover with cold water. Allow them to soak for at least 2 to 3 hours.
Note: You can put them in the fridge and let them soak overnight.
3. Drain and dry
When you're ready to make the fries, drain off the water and lay the potatoes on paper towels to dry them.
4. First fry
Heat a few inches of oil in a heavy pot to a medium heat or until the oil reaches 300 degrees F. Cook the potatoes in batches until they are soft - approximately 4 to 5 minutes per batch. This is to just start the cooking process. Remove each batch and drain on new/dry paper towels.
Note: They should not be brown at this point!
5. Second fry
Once all the potatoes have been fried at medium heat, turn up the heat to high or until the oil reaches 400 degrees F. Then start the second round of frying in batches again, cooking until the fries are golden and crisp. Remove the potatoes from the oil and drain on paper towels.
5. Season and enjoy!
Sprinkle with sea salt or your favourite seasoning. Add a touch of garnish like chopped parsley to add a bit of colour. Try some of our homemade burger sauces that can be used for fries.
