I admit – I’m a little snob about my taters. Thank goodness we live in the tater state! I talk to people all the time in the food business - all the time. I’m constantly asking questions. Like this one – “What’s your secret to great fries?!” I’ve learned that if your quiet and listen – most of the time they will reveal their little secrets to great recipes. Coach and I eat at this little hole in the wall and LOVE – (yes – all in caps.) their french fries. I started a conversation with one of the gals and all of a sudden – I had their fry recipe. Apparently - unbeknownst to me - there are three secrets to a great french fry – want to know what they are?! Okay – I’ll tell you. Let your fries take a bath in cold water for about 20 minutes – fry them at 325 degrees for about 6 minutes then turn up the heat to 375 degrees and fry again. Holy guacamole! Who knew?! I’m sure a lot of my foodie friends did – but I had no idea. Thank you my precious for telling me your little secret to great tasting fries – I will never forget you! Hugs.
On another note.. What’s your favorite dipping sauce for fries? Mine… Ketchup and malt vinegar. Delish! But I’d be lying if I left out ranch!
