I know, I know. French fries aren't exactly "healthy" but sometimes, they're the perfect side to a summer meal when nothing else will do, so why not make them from scratch? There's not too much to them and it only requires three ingredients.
3 to 4 potatoes Salt Oil for frying
Wash, peel and cut the potatoes into thin strips.
When the oil is hot, carefully place in the potato strips. Cook for about five minutes or until they start to turn golden. Remove, place on a paper towel lined plate and promptly put in the refrigerator.
When the fries have cooled, return them to the oil for about ten minutes, or until they brown sufficiently. Remove to a fresh paper towel and salt lightly. Let rest a minute before serving.
