Crispy Golden French Fries
There’s nothing quite like the irresistible aroma and crunch of homemade Crispy Golden French Fries. This recipe takes the humble potato and transforms it into a mouthwatering delight that’s perfect as a snack, side dish, or even the star of your meal.
Creating the perfect French fries begins with selecting the right potatoes. Opt for Russet potatoes, known for their high starch content, which helps achieve that coveted crispy exterior and fluffy interior.
- 4 large Russet potatoes
- Vegetable oil for frying
- Salt to taste
- Start by peeling the potatoes and cutting them into uniform sticks.
- Rinse the potato sticks in cold water to remove excess starch. Pat them completely dry.
- Heat the vegetable oil in a deep fryer to 325°F (160°C).
- Working in batches, fry the potato sticks for about 4-5 minutes or until they’re pale and just beginning to crisp. Remove and let them rest for a few minutes.
- Increase the oil temperature to 375°F (190°C). Fry the partially cooked potatoes again, in batches, until they turn a beautiful golden brown and are crispy.
- Remove the fries, drain excess oil, and place them on a paper towel-lined plate. Season generously with salt.
- Serve the Crispy Golden French Fries hot and enjoy them with your favorite dipping sauces.
