Rick's Quick and Easy Soul Fries!
Step 1: What you'll need
Potatoes (I've found the red russet kind have the best taste)
Apple cutter (If you don't have one already there fairly cheap anywhere, I think I this one is from Wal-mart)
Basket (or any kind of serving tray to dump the fries in)
Paper towels (or in a pinch a couple of brown lunch bags work well too)
Marcum's Soul Seasoning (you can get this at almost any food chain store)
Step 2: Apple Cutter?
Tip: Now would be a good time to plug-in your fryer and start getting the oil hot
Step 1: Rinse the potatoes under cool water to wash any impurities away
Step 2: Get out your cutting board and your apple cutter
Step 3: Standard potato up on its end in place the apple cutter on the top
Step 4: Push down quickly to slice the potato
Step 5: Slice up enough potatoes to feed your group
Step 3: The final cut!
Step 6: Sharpen your knife and layout several of the thick wedges to be cut
Step 7: Cut the potato wedge down the center
Once you've cut the wedges in half, all you should be left with is a core's
Step 8: Cut each of the cores and half and then cut the halves and half (basically just quarter the core's
Step 4: Fry it up and add a little soul!
Step 9: Dump your fries into the fry basket
Step 10: lower the basket in the oil (Tip: be careful the water and the potatoes makes the oil fry up big)
Let the fries cook until they start floating to the top in the oil
Step 11: Lift and drain the basket from the oil and pour into serving basket lined with paper towels
Step 12: while the fries are still glistening from the oil take the sole seasoning and lightly dust to fries then shake and re-dust till you have a nice light covering
That's it see how quick and simple it is. Altogether if you're quick with a knife you should be able to fry up a batch in as little as 10 to 15 minutes. Now if you've planned your meal right you should have had a grill fired up, the steaks marinated, and while the fries were cooking so were the steaks. Now it's just time to sit back pop the cork on a nice Chianti and listen to the rave reviews you'll be getting from your amazing fries!
