How to Make French Fries at Home?

French fries are one of the most loved foods all over the world. Most French fries are made of potatoes. Potatoes are considered as one of the most popular vegetables. They are more so easy to prepare, tasty and delicious to eat with meat, fish or chicken. Anyone can cook French fries at home by following some simple instructions. It takes only little time to prepare them. 

The only reason we ever ordered food in the movie theater was for the fresh hot french fries. They were twice as delicious as they were unhealthy. Now thanks to this awesome french fry cutter, you can enjoy those same fries at home. The best part is, you can customize your fries with whatever seasonings you want to eat.

 

Choose your potatoes wisely    

If you've ever eaten a french fry, you know how tasty they can be. But did you know that the type of potato you use will make a difference in the taste and texture of your fries?

Four Types of Potatoes Perfect for Frying

To make fries, you can cut any type of potato into sticks, but certain varieties have special qualities.

Here's a look at the best potatoes for fries:

  1. Russet (sometimes called Idaho) produces light, fluffy fries. These make excellent steak fries and are often recommended for frying because they absorb less oil than other types of potatoes. They also work well for oven-baked fries.
  2. Fingerlings or baby potatoes are small and thin, and they're perfect for twice-cooking (see below).
  3. Yukon golds are a rich yellow color and have a buttery flavor, although they're slightly less starchy than russets and don't absorb as much oil when fried.
  4. Baby reds -- also called Red Bliss -- are very similar to Yukon golds in color and flavor, but they're smaller. They're good for shoestring fries as well as twice-cooked potatoes because they cook quickly and easily.

 

How To Cut French Fries to the Perfect Size!

If you're frying up some homemade french fries, they need to be cut to the right size. Too small and they won't cook all the way through. Too big and they will burn before they cook all the way through.

Have you ever noticed that restaurant-style French fries are cut into perfect little sticks? Now you can make them at home, too! It's surprisingly easy to do.

To make restaurant-style French fries, you need to start with a whole potato. This is important because the size of the potato determines how many fries you get, and the shape determines the thickness of each fry. A medium sized potato will give you about 4 cups of fries.

If your potato is bigger than average, it will give you more fries. If it's smaller than average, it will give you fewer.

You'll want to cut your potato into slices that are 1/4 inch thick. You can tell if your slices are about right by putting them up against the edge of the bowl or soup can. That way, when you slice all of your potatoes, they'll be roughly the same size.

To get long, perfectly shaped French fries, cut each slice into sticks that are 3/4 inch wide by 1 1/4 inches long. Each stick should be about as long as your index finger to your thumb when they're held together at their tips.

Be careful not to cut your potatoes too thick or thin!
