Why do you soak the taters in water? Why do you fry them twice?

In short: It makes it crispier.

Have you tried the Red potatoes? and can you leave the skins on?
# Posted By Tom | 3/16/12 12:43 AM
Yes you may leave the skins on. No I have not tried red potatoes. But I'd give it a go!

Would you take the same steps to make sweet potato fries?

Try using paper-thin slices of potato and you'll end up with potato chips!

want to try these

Two questions:

1. Should the fries be completely submerged in the oil? Using your measurements and a skillet, the bulk of my potatoes didn't touch the oil in the bottom of the pan. I tossed the potatoes in the oil and let it cook that way.
2. Can you give any timeline guides on each degree setting?

With Coconut Oil as expensive as it is...using 12 ozs of oil for one batch of potatoes is going to cost you nearly $10, just for the oil. Are you able to reuse the oil for something else?

I'd have a special labelled jar with a lid just to store grease. Grease picks up scents and flavours of what you fried in it, so I have a jar with grease for chicken, and I only fry fries in my deep fryer. If I were using precious coconut oil for fries, I'd have a labelled jar for french fry coconut oil.

I used to fry often and you can strain the oil a save if for reuse I always did, the second fry is very necessary, you do want your fries submerged or very close and stir them a bit (submerged is better) I bet this would tastes quite a bit better than the oil I used to use. Also if you leave the peel on wash it well, you can always add batter and play with seasonings too. I am definitely trying it with the coconut oil soon ^.^
