Homemade fries are WAY better than anything you’d get at a restaurant, and are fun and easy to make.




Cut the potatoes into matchsticks shape, either with a knife or with a French fry cutter. The potato pieces should all be similar in size. Place the potatoes in a bowl of cold water. Soak the potatoes for at least 30 minutes then Drain the water from the potatoes.


Add oil in frying pan then Place about 1/2 of the potatoes in the pot, and cook until tender. This takes about 5-6 minutes. Repeat the process with the remaining potatoes.


Increase the heat of the oil . Place 1/2 of the potatoes back in the pot and cook for an additional 2-4 minutes or until golden brown. Repeat the process with the remaining potatoes. Place the cooked potatoes on a sheet pan lined with paper towels.


Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste over the fries. Add parsley if desired


Serve and Enjoy!!
