How to Cook French Fries

  1. Peel the potatoes and slice off their edges.
  2. Slice them in long and thick sticks. Move them in a large bowl, and cover with cold water. Let them soak for about 5 minutes to wash off the starch.
  3. Boil the potatoes for about 3-5 minutes.
  4. Take them out and let them rest for about 10 minutes, then put them on a paper towel and refrigerate for the next hour.
  5. Heat a large saucepan and fill it with vegetable oil. Use a thermometer and when heat reaches 260°F/130°C, add the potatoes and fry them for 5 minutes. Remove the potatoes, drain them of the extra oil and let them cool for the next 10 minutes.
  6. Turn up the heat once more, and let the oil reach 360°F/180°C. Fry them again until golden and crispy.
  7. When ready, remove them from the stove, season them with salt and drain over paper towels.
