peanut oil for frying recommendedbut use the oil you prefer to fry
Preheat deep fryer or dutch oven with 3 inches of oil to 325°F.
Cut potatoes lengthwise into about 1/2 inch sticks.
Place cut fries into cold water until ready to fry.
Take the fries out of the water in batches and dry them off with a clean kitchen towel. CAREFULLY place them into the hot oil and cook for 10-12 minutes. Stir them around in the oil a few times. There should not be a lot of color on the fries at this point. You will need to fry in batches.
Shake off excess oil and dump fries out onto a wire rack that is sitting on a sheet tray.
Turn up the heat to 375°F. Again, carefully place the fries back into the fryer in batches. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until the exterior is golden brown and crispy.
Shake off excess oil and dump back onto the wire rack. Immediately season with season salt and kosher salt to your taste.
Russet potatoes are the best for this recipe.
You'll want to make surer your potatoes are patted dry before placing in oil, this will prevent splatter.
The two fries are necessary to get the crispy outer coating.
You can season with whatever fry seasoning that you like.
