I put sliced potatoes in a pot of cold oil,
turns on the heat, and let them get up to
a crispy on the ooutside and creamy on the inside.
This method of cooking them sounds too simple to work,
but as the temperature of the oil rises,
the potatoes cook from the outer layer in until the
the french fries are crunchy outside and creamy inside.
Directions:Br> Peel a few fresh large russet potatoes,
cut into long french-fry sticks of your size.
Rinse in cold water; shake off cold water.
Pat potato sticks dry with paper towels.
Transfer potatoes to a large deep heavy pot,
Pour in cannola or vegetable oil to cover potatoes by 1".
Place pot over medium heat. Cook for 15 minutes.
Continue cooking until potatoes are very tender,
Increase heat to medium-high and cook until golden.
Remove potatoes from il using a slotted spoon and
transfer fries to paper towels to drain.
Season with salt to taste and serve warm.
