Mickey D Fries
Cut 6 russet potatoes thin and long about 3 1/2 inches by 1/4 inch or so. Using a mandolin helps.
Once cut, soak the potatoes in a bowl of water for about 5 minutes.Transfer potatoes to a pot of water with 2 tablespoons of vinegar and 2 tablespoons of salt. Bring to a boil and boil for 4 to 5 minutes. When potatoes are ready, remove and put into an ice bath to stop cooking until cooled.
Strain out onto a cloth or paper towels to dry for at least 15 minutes.
When dry, fry at 375 degrees for 1 minute only. Remove again to paper towels to dry in a single layer. When dry, freeze.
When ready to have fries...Fry frozen potatoes at 375 degrees for 3 minutes exactly. Lay out on brown paper sacks or paper towels and salt while hot.
Now you can have Mc Donald's fries anytime right from your freezer. Everyone will love you for them!
