Fresh Cut French Fries

A wonderful treat that goes great with anything from a Hot Dog to Steak! These are FRESH cut, fried, salted & served up RED HOT! A fast & easy side that kids young & old will dive right into!
2 Baking Potatoes per person.
Vegetable Oil enough to give you 3 inched deep in your skillet
Pepper if using
Ketchup, a must for me!
A good Malt Vinegar for those vinegar lovers
Paper Towel to drain cooked fries

Scrub your potatoes & dry. Slices into nice big wedges. Heat oil in a large deep skillet, I use my black iron skillet! Oi should be hot enough to sizzle a potato wedge the second it is dropped into the oil. I use medium high heat, you do not want oil to smoke. Place all the cut potato wedges in the oil & fry away, turning once one side of the potatoes is brown. Turn every now & then to brown those fries! I use this method over deep frying, it works just as well & uses less oil! This will take about 10 minutes! Once potatoes are browned spoon out of the oil with a slotted spoon & lay fries in a deep bowl lined with layers of paper towel. Blot off excess oil! Serve hot with any of the condiments suggested! Taste & SMILE!
