Homemade Olive-Oil French FriesIn our house, we love french fries. What can I say? And as we are trying to eat healthy, clean and whole foods, we decided to make our own.
We used our own potatoes, and extra virgin olive oil. These need to be deep fried to really be good, so they are not low calorie but a much more healthy alternative to store bought.
- Cut the potatoes into strips. Soak in a bowl of hot water for 15 minutes. Then thoroughly dry the fries as water and hot oil don't mix.
- Using a deep fryer, add the correct amount of oil for your fryer. When the oil is up to temperature, fry the french fries for 8-9 minutes until they are golden brown. You could probably use a deep skillet or pot and fry them that way.
- Drain on paper towels and salt to taste. Yum, YUM!
Our kids love these and we have them occasionally as a special treat.
Be sure to check out the recipe for Onion Rings as they go really well with the french fries.
