August 12th is Julienne Fries Day. How about cooking up a batch of homemade Julienne Fries to celebrate?! Serve alongside a nice juicy burger or a nice piece of fish.
4 Medium Baking Potatoes (1 1/2 Pounds)
Vegetable Oil For Deep-Fat Frying
Peel the potatoes. To prevent darkening immerse the peeled potatoes in a bowl of ice water until ready to cut. Cut the potatoes lengthwise into 3/8 inch wide strips. Return the potatoes to the ice water. In a heavy deep 3 quart saucepan or fryer, heat the vegetable oil to 365° F. To prevent splattering pat the potatoes dry. Using a spoon, carefully add the potatoes, a few at a time, to the hot oil. Fry for 5 to 6 minutes or until crisp and golden brown, turning once. Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 300° F. Using a slotted spoon, carefully remove the fries from the hot oil and drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with kosher salt. Place parchment paper onto a baking sheet. Put the cooked fries onto the baking sheet and place into the oven to keep warm while you are frying the remaining potatoes. Serves 4
