How many times have you been asked the question, "Would you like fries or a salad with that?"
How many times has your body screamed, "SALAD" only to have your mouth reply, "fries."
How many times...when you opted for the salad...did you sit there and pick fries off your dining companion's plate ~ even squirting some ketchup right along side those greens?
How many times has is been YOUR plate that was being, "picked from" leaving you agitated...annoyed... and yearning to scream, "STEP OFF........MY FRIES!"
How many times have you received a side of fries and thought... "Ugh, they're too crispy" or "Ugh, they're too soft"...only to sit there and finish every stinkin one?
How many times have you, "SUPER SIZED" ......when no one else was around?
How many times has an old french fry ...sitting half under the floor mat of your car...conjured up memories of both ...good times ...and guilt?
How many times while eating your fries...did you wish you were drinking a beer?
I'm positive YOU can come up with some more!
So...how many times.....be honest!
Homemade French Fries with Sea Salt
Scrub your potatoes clean.
Slice potatoes into desired shape...strips, wedges....whatever.
Get your potatoes as DRY as possible. I used paper towels and NO LIE took a hair dryer to these babies to extract some of their moisture.
Get your oil to 400 degrees (super HOT) because the second you carefully place your fries in the pot - the temperature of the oil will DROP.
Fry your potatoes to desired doneness (we like ours crispy) these batches each took about 8-10 minutes which was longer than I thought.
Sprinkle with sea salt the instant they come out of the fryer!
Ketchup and White Distilled Vinegar make nice sides...
