 Potatoes
 Fry cutter or Knife
 Ice
 Vegetable Oil
 Salt, Pepper and Finely Grate Parmesan Cheese to serve

1

Scrub and rinse your potatoes, dry them thoroughly. Cut them with your fry cutter or a plain old knife into even fry strips. Immediately toss cut fries into a bowl of cold water, and let them soak in there for about an hour.

2

Scoop fries from the soaking water and immediately put them into boiling water. (I usually work in 1-2 lb batches.) Boil them for 1-2 minutes, depending on how thick your fries are. Scoop them out of the boiling water and immediately put them in ice water until they are cool. Dry fries out by spreading them on a paper towel, then toss with 1 tablespoon of oil for every pound of fries. Spread out on a large cookie sheet and freeze in your freezer until firm. Transfer them to a gallon freezer bag or a container, and keep for up to 6 months in the freezer. Ours usually don't last that long.

3

Fry in your home fryer at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes. If you want crispy fries, make sure you double fry them. The length of time depends on your fry thickness, so make sure to keep testing them.

4

Or you can bake them in your oven at 375 degrees for 15-17 minutes. When fries are done, immediately toss them with salt and pepper. If you like "fancy" fries, you can toss them with a liberal sprinkle of finely grated Parmesan cheese and garlic salt.
