Gourmet French Fries

Coconut oil adds the perfect flavor to french fries.  Try it out for yourself.  You won’t ever go back to vegetable oil.

Who can resist french fries?!

 

Gourmet French Fries at Home

1 pound russet potatoes

1 tablespoon distilled white vinegar

Kosher salt

Kelapo coconut oil (enough to deep fry)

Parsley, to taste

 

Place potatoes and vinegar in saucepan and add 2 quarts of water and 2 tablespoons of salt. Bring to a boil over high heat. Boil for 10 minutes. Potatoes should be fully tender, but not falling apart. Drain and spread on paper towel-lined rimmed baking sheet. Allow to dry for five minutes.

Meanwhile, heat oil in 5-quart Dutch oven or large wok over high heat to 400°F. Add 1/3 of fries to oil (oil temperature should drop to around 360°F). Cook for 50 seconds, agitating occasionally with wire mesh spider, then remove to second paper-towel lined rimmed baking sheet. Repeat with remaining potatoes (working in two more batches), allowing oil to return to 400°F after each addition. Allow potatoes to cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes. Continue with step 3, or for best results, freeze potatoes at least over night, or up to 2 months.

Return oil to 400°F over high heat. Fry half of potatoes until crisp and light golden brown, about 3 1/2 minutes, adjusting heat to maintain at around 360°F. Drain in a bowl lined with paper towels and season immediately with kosher salt and parsley. Cooked fries can be kept hot and crisp on a wire rack set on a sheet tray in a 200°F oven while second batch is cooked. Serve immediately with ketchup or your favorite dipping sauce.

    MM, those fries look delicious… especially since you cooked them in coconut oil. Too bad I’m on the low carb diet!
