Step 1: Empty a Jar of Pickles

That's easy enough right? Empty the jar and save the brine from your home canned pickles or your favorite store bought pickle.

Step 2: Prep Your Potatoes

  • Peel and slice your favorite type of potato and place in the brine and refrigerate overnight.

Step 3: 24 Hours Later........Get Ready...It's Fry Time

Drain your marinated potatoes in a colander and remove the dill or spices you don't wish to fry. I personally like some of these goodies fried, you decide!!

Let drain well, at least for about 15 minutes.

Step 4: Fry Baby Fry

Heat oil of your choice ( I like peanut oil). Add fries in small batches until done, draining on a paper towel. Salt as needed, serve!

Serve with ketchup, or any other condiment of your choice. We love these with a sour cream dip made with 1/2 cup sour cream, 1/8 teaspoon of dill, 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder and pinch of salt.

I tried the storing them as pickle, great tip! if you cook the patatoes at the oven first (or microwave) to rid of moisture, you can get less smoke from hot oil by that method.

If you like crispier fries, follow the instructions above, but while the fried fries are draining, raise the temp of your oil about 25F higher than your frying temp (but not to smoking), and fry the fries, again! The first frying cooks the potatoes, and the second one crisps the outside.
