Make Fries Yourself: That’s How Works | Dennispoint Campground MD

Make fries yourself, this is how it works

To make French fries yourself, you need two people: three large potatoes, salt, paper towels, and 1 liter of oil or 0.8 to 1 kilogram of frying fat.


  • To make potato chips, you must first peel them, wash them well, and then place them in a bowl of cold water.
  • Then remove the potatoes one by one and cut them first into slices, then into strips of any size.
  • Return cut potatoes to cold water to prevent brown discoloration.
  • Meanwhile, you can heat the fat or oil for frying in a large saucepan. The temperature should reach around 180 degrees, which can be seen boiling on a wooden skewer.
  • Instead of a frying pan, you can also use an electric deep fryer and let the oil heat up in it.
  • Now take the potato sticks out of the water and dry them with a paper towel.
  • Now you can add a portion of potatoes to the oil with a slotted spoon and pre-fry for two to three minutes.
  • If you then take out the potato pieces and, after letting them cool, put them back in the oil for five or six minutes, the fries will be even crispier and more golden than if you fried them directly for 7 or 8 minutes.
  • Finally, all you have to do is put all the finished fries in a bowl and sprinkle them with salt to taste. You can also use other spices.

Alternative: you can also prepare baked fries

An even healthier, lower-fat alternative is baked potato chips. Here you also need three potatoes for two people, a tablespoon of oil, a teaspoon of sweet paprika and parchment paper.

  • Wash, peel and cut the potatoes as described in the previous paragraph. Here, however, you can skip the water bowl and the more laborious drying.
  • Put the pre-cut potato pieces in a bowl and mix them after adding a little salt, oil, paprika or other spices.
  • Then spread the finished fries on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees or 175 degrees with convection.
  • After about ten minutes, you should flip the potatoes once. In total, the fries take half an hour to be ready.
