Perfect French Fries Serves 4
5 large Russet potatoes, peeled or scrubbed
1 quart peanut oil
Kosher or sea salt
1. Peel or scrub potatoes well. Use the regular size
grid to cut all the potatoes. Put the fries in a large bowl of cold water
and refrigerate from 1 to 8 hours.
2. Heat the oil in a heavy-bottomed medium stockpot over medium heat, or
in a tabletop deep fryer, to 325°F. Line a baking sheet with paper towels and
set aside.
3. Drain the fries well and pat dry in batches with paper towels. Fry each
batch, turning frequently, for 3 to 4 minutes or until the fries are a pale
blond color and limp. Remove with a mesh skimmer to the baking sheet
lined with paper towels.
4. Increase the heat of the oil to 375°F and fry the potatoes again, in
batches, turning frequently, until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove
with the skimmer and drain on clean paper towels. Season to taste with salt
and serve immediately.
Helpful tips:
• Mount the cutter by the sink and fill the sink with clean, cold water to
catch the cut potatoes as you process them, or use a bowl in the sink.
• Russet or baking varieties of potatoes make the best french fries.
• Soaking the cut potatoes prevents them from oxidizing (turning brown when
cut) and removes excess starch, which keeps potatoes from sticking together
and allows them to achieve maximum crispness.
• Use peanut oil for deep frying as it has a high smoking point and very mild
flavor. Using our cutter ensures uniform-looking fries and even cooking.
• To oven roast fries, preheat oven to 450°F. Spray large rimmed baking sheet
with nonstick spray. Toss cut potatoes with canola oil in large bowl and
sprinkle with salt and pepper; spread in single layer on prepared baking
sheet and roast for 30-40 minutes or until tender, turning occasionally.
• The cutter works great on other firm vegetables or fruit such as apples,
pears, zucchini, sweet potatoes, and cucumbers.
