Would you like fries with that??

This pregnant lady loves me some french fries!! Here is a great recipe on how to make the perfect homemade french fry! 
-5 pounds of Russet Potatoes
- Sunflower or Vegetable Oil for frying
- Sea Salt
-Dipping Sauce! (see below for my favs!)

1) Start by peeling five pounds of potatoes, then cut them into five long pieces. Then lay these pieces flat to cut them into sticks. Throw the sticks into a pot or large bowl and cover them with cold water, then let them soak for at least 2-3 hours. Note: Soaking the potatoes helps to remove the unnecessary starch from the outside of the potato, allowing the french fry to later get that crispy texture we all know & love! 

2) After they’ve soaked for 2-3 hours, drain the fries. Lay the fries on a bunch of paper towels to dry them off. Blot the top to remove excess moisture.

3) Next, heat a pot of oil to 400 degrees, using a thermometer to monitor the temperature. Add the potatoes to the boiling oil.

4) Cook until they are golden brown and crispy!!

5) Drain them on a plate with a napkin or paper towel…

6) Add Sea Salt

7) Enjoy with your favorite sauce!! David & I love to add balsamic vinegar and make a Sriracha dipping sauce! 

Hope you enjoy these as much as I did!
