The Best Homemade French Fries

Directions

  1. Peel the potatoes , if desired, and cut lengthwise into 1/4- to 3/8-inch sticks. Soak in ice water if not ready to fry.
  2. In a deep-fat fryer, heat peanut oil according to manufacturers directions to 365 degree F, or heat oil in a 3-quart or larger saucepan to 365 degree F (saucepan should be no more than half full).
