 Ingredients List

  • 6 c Vegetable oil
  • 1/3 c Sugar
  • 2 c Warm water
  • 2 lg Russett potatoes, peeled
  • Salt


Heat the oil in a deep saucepan over low-med. heat for about 20 minutes. In
a med. bowl, mix the sugar into the water until dissolved. Cut the potatoes
in half lengthwise, and then into 1/4" strips. Put the potatoes into the
sugar solution and soak for 15 minutes. Remove the potatoes and dry them
thoroughly on paper towels. The right oil temperature is crucial here. To
test the oil, fry a couple of potato slices for 6 minutes. Remove and cool,
then taste. The fries should no get too dark too soon and should be soft in
the middle. If the oil is too hot, turn it down and test again. The fries
should not be undercooked, either. If they are, turn up the heat. When the
oil temperature is just right, put all of the potato slices in the oil for
1 minute. This is the blanching stage. Take the fries out of the oil and
let them cool. When the fries have cooled, place them into the oil again
for 5 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oil and place on a
paper towel-covered plate. Salt to taste.
