Ingredients for

10 g salt
2 l oil, for frying
spices to taste

Preparation

  • Total time: 3 h

Prepare the fries

1
Cut the potatoes into sticks with a dicer and pen cutter and put them in cold water for about an hour to wash out the starch a little.
2
Boil water with vinegar and salt and blanch/pre-cook the potato sticks in it for ten minutes. Then let them steam out a little on a kitchen towel.
3
Heat the oil or deep fryer to 170°C and deep fry the blanched potato sticks for 10 minutes. Then leave to cool
4
If possible, freeze the pre-fried potato sticks overnight (or longer). This step is not absolutely necessary, but ensures that the fries become a little softer on the inside.
5
Heat the deep fryer to 180°C and deep fry the potato sticks a second time for about 60 seconds until done. Then place them in a bowl and season to taste.
