    When you’re craving real French fries, you don’t have to head out to a restaurant. Stay inside, and make your own delicious fries. Crispy outside and soft inside, these French fries are sure to delight your family. The cold-water soak and double-frying process combine to make them extra-crispy.

    You will need:

    • 2 cups cold water
    • 2 large peeled russet potatoes, sliced lengthwise into ¼-inch pieces
    • 6 cups vegetable oil
    • salt for seasoning

    1. Soak potato strips in cold water for 30 minutes.

    2. Remove potato strips from water, drying completely with paper towels.

    3. Heat oil to 375 F in deep fryer.

    4. Carefully add potatoes to oil, and fry for 2 minutes.

    5. Remove from oil, and cool.

    6. Return fries to hot oil, and fry another 2 to 3 minutes, until golden brown.

    7. Drain fries on paper towels placed over newspaper or brown paper bags to reduce greasiness.

    8. Season with salt and serve.
