Homemade french fries. I don't really have any back story for this post. I just had a hankerin' for some fries, so I made some..'cause that's how I roll.
Potatoes, wash them up
Slice off the bottom so they stand up
Now use that dusty fry/apple cutter that you bought when you got married but have never really used since
Soak the potatoes in some cold water--I ended up forgetting these in the fridge for a day or two...hey, life happens--soaking draws out some starch, making the fries more crispy
Dry off your fries, heat up the oil, and drop them in carefully
Foam? That's never happened before. Did you dry them off like I told you to? Didn't think so...
Don't be impatient like me...dry them off! When the foam goes away it means the fries are just about done
Drain on some paper towels
