There is a trick to making the perfect fry, you cannot just throw them in the oven or throw them in oil no no no. Follow my steps to creating the crunchy and soft perfectly brown french fry.
Cut up 5 potatoes or how many you think you will need, peel or not to peel that is your decision. Cut potatoes in half (long way), cut into fours (long way) and then cut those in half (long way again).
Place all fries into water and let soak for 2 hours or over night.
Dry off fries with paper towel.
Bring Oil to 300* Par fry the french fries to the point before they turn brown (you do not want them brown yet) which will take between 3-5 minutes. Take out and drain on paper towel. When you get all the fries done turn up the heat and get oil to 400*
Place french fries back into oil for 1-2 minutes until they are brown.
Drain on paper towel, salt and enjoy the perfect crunch
