Oil temp. is critical in cooking these french fries. Be sure to test the
oil on several potato slices before cooking large portions. And keep in
mind that the more your cook at once, the longer your cooking time may be.
The blanching stage may seem to be a nuicance, but it is crucial if
you want your fries to come out right. Blanching allows the fries to soak
up a little oil while cooling, and wil make them crispy when done.
