Homemade French Fries

Homemade French Fries


1kg sebago or red delight potatoes, peeled
Vegetable oil, for deep-frying
1 tsp sea salt
Aioli, to serve


Cut potatoes into French fry thickness. Layer between sheets of paper towel to remove excess moisture. Stand for 15 minutes.

Heat oil in a wok or deep frying pan. Fry French fries in batches, until each fry rises to the surface and is opaque. Using a slotted spoon, transfer fries to a tray lined with paper towel. Cool for 10 minutes.

Reheat oil and fry the fries in batches again. For a further 2 or 3 minutes until golden. Drain on a paper towel, transfer to a bowl and add salt to coat.
