  1. Scrub the potatoes and cut them lengthwise.

  2. We use a 3/16"-square cutter, but you can cut them any size you like.

  3. Soak them in water to remove excess starch, and dry them.

  4. Just before serving, heat the oil to 375 degrees and fry the potatoes in small batches until golden brown and crispy, about 3 minutes.

  5. Drain them on a cookie sheet and sprinkle with salt.

  6. Thicker fries should be fried twice; fry them first at 325 degrees, for 5 to 8 minutes, remove them and drain them, and then fry them again at 375 degrees until the desired color and crispness are reached.
