edit: Thanks for featuring my Instructable, Instructables! Read the comments for some helpful tips on frying, what oils to use, and some alternate methods of cooking. Thanks for reading and enjoy!
Step 1: Collect your materials
- Canola Oil (Olive Oil and Vegetable Oil also work)
- Deep-dish pan
Step 2: Prep you potatoes
Use a potato peeler to take the skin off of your potato(es). Once you have skinned your potato(es), place it on your cutting board and cut it up into long, slender, oval-shaped, slices.
Step 3: Fry your...fries?
Turn the stove to medium/low heat (the lower the flame, the longer the fries cook. Cooking them on low tastes a lot better but takes a lot longer). Drop your fries in carefully, making sure not to splash burning hot oil all over yourself and your kitchen.
While your fries cook, it might be a good idea to get out a bowl and put a paper towel in it. The paper towel will soak up the excess grease on your fries and make them taste better.
Step 4: Take 'em out and eat 'em up!
These fries taste good with salt, ketchup, or the hot sauce of your choice. Enjoy!
