Ask anyone - there's nothing like homemade, hand-cut french fries. In fact, that's how they're made in many upscale restaurants. With our recipe for Pommes Frites (that's French for "french fries") you can chow down on great-tasting french fries anytime you want.

What You'll Need

  • 5 large baking potatoes with skin on, cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch sticks
  • 3 cups ice cubes
  • 3 cups vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper for sprinkling

What to Do

  1. Place cut potatoes in a large bowl and cover with cold water. Add ice and let sit 30 minutes.
  2. In a soup pot over medium heat, heat oil to 350 degrees F. Make sure the pot is not filled more than 1/3 with oil.
  3. Drain potatoes and place on paper towels; pat dry. Carefully place potatoes in oil and cook 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown and tender, turning occasionally. Using a slotted spoon, remove fries to a paper towel-lined plate. Season with salt and pepper and serve.


The ice water makes the french fries crisp when cooked!
