1 large potato, cut into evenly sized strips
4 cups of vegetable oil for frying
Salt to taste
1. Soak potatoes in a large bowl of water for about 30 minutes. Remove potatoes from water then pat dry thoroughly with paper towels.
2. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan at low heat. Gently add the potatoes in the hot oil for about 5 minutes, stirring and flipping the potatoes occasionally. Remove potatoes from oil to drain on paper towel and to cool completely.
3. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan at medium heat. Fry the potatoes again until golden brown, 5 to 6 minutes. Blot with a paper towel. Sprinkle with salt to serve.
4. Serve and enjoy your crispy fries!
