French Fries

Ornament looks just like a red container of shoestring french fries from McDonald's!

French Fries are popular for their taste and convenience. They are a favorite side dish, especially with hamburgers. Millions of french fries are eaten in the U. S. each year! Whether found in fancy restaurants, fast food joints, or at home at the dinner table, French Fries are a universal favorite.

Who among us has not heard that famous question...."would you like fries with that?"

Recipe for French Fries

  • 4  pounds  Idaho potatoes
  • Vegetable oil
  • Salt
Peel and cut Idaho potatoes into 1/2-inch-wide strips.
Pour oil to a depth of 4 inches in a Dutch oven, and heat to 375°. Fry potato strips in small batches in hot oil 12 minutes or until golden. Drain on paper towels. Salt to taste.

Tips: Once potatoes are cut, place in ice water for a while, drain well on paper towels before frying.
