Homemade Hand Cut French Fries

It takes a little bit of time to wash, cut, soak & dry off hand cut fries, but it’s so worth it!

So much starch! You’ll get a crispier French fry if you soak for at least 30 mins. Trust me. Ive tried to cheat the time before.

The whole 2 step frying process is real. These fry guys have been fried once. When you par cook the first time on a lower temp, it preps them for greatness. 🍟

One more fry on a higher heated oil and these fry guys are ready for dipping!

My recipe:

4-6 washed large russet potatoes

(You can peel them first if you wish- I hate peeling!)

3 cups oil (I prefer peanut)

Sea salt

Ice water in large bowl

Have a large bowl filled with ice water all filled and ready!

As you cut your fries, add them to the bowl of ice water. This keeps them from browning and also lets the starch escape. Super important! Let the fries sit in the ice water for 30 mins.

Heat oil to 325 degrees.

Rinse the fries and lay them out on padded paper towels and dry thoroughly.

Fry the potatoes in batches for 3-5 mins, as to not overload the dryer or pan. Before putting next batch in, make sure the oil is back to the 325 degree temp.

Fry again! This time fry for about 2-3 mins at 375 degrees, frying in batches.

Perfection. ❤️
