Tip for Getting Crispy Fries
French fries ? Undoubtedly the dish that everyone agrees on, both young and old gourmands. But to succeed, you have to know how to prepare them according to the rules of the art. Firstly, it is important to choose potatoes with floury flesh (Bintje, Agria, Caesar, Marabel, etc.). If you are a fry purist, you can imitate the Belgians and use beef fat instead of vegetable oil.
Sunflower oil c/n
Cold water c/n
White vinegar 2 tbsp
Peel the potatoes and cut them into sticks about 1 cm thick (you can leave them with the skin on but you must wash them very well).
Place the cut potatoes in a large container and pour water to cover them.
Add the two tablespoons of vinegar and mix a little.
Let sit in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes. An hour would be ideal.
Remove the potatoes from the water and dry them as much as possible (you can use a cloth or napkins).
