- 4 russet potatoes, peeled or thoroughly scrubbed
- Peanut oil for frying (recommended, but you can use your preferred frying oil)
- Signature Blends Garlic Salt
- Preheat your deep fryer, Dutch oven, or a large pot filled with 3 inches of oil to precisely 325°F for optimal results
- Slice the russet potatoes lengthwise into approximately 1/2-inch sticks, ensuring the ideal shape for crispy, golden fries.
- Submerge the freshly cut fries in a generously-sized bowl of cold water, keeping them there until you're prepared for the frying process.
- Carefully retrieve the fries from the water in manageable batches and use a clean kitchen towel to gently blot them dry, eliminating any lingering moisture.
- Delicately lower the prepared fries into the preheated oil and allow them to fry for a duration of 10-12 minutes. During this process, remember to gently stir them within the oil occasionally. At this stage, the fries should retain a pale color. Depending on the quantity, it may be necessary to fry them in separate batches to ensure even cooking.
- Once they have reached the desired texture, shake off any excess oil and transfer the fries onto a wire rack positioned over a large baking sheet to collect any drips.
- Elevate the oil temperature to 375°F. With great care, reintroduce the fries into the fryer in smaller portions. Fry them for an additional 2-3 minutes or until they display a delectable golden brown and irresistibly crispy exterior.
- Shake off any surplus oil and return the fries to the wire rack. While still piping hot, season them to your preference with Signature Blends Garlic Salt to create a flavor profile that suits your individual taste.
