Make Fries, Not Baked Potatoes

Now that the fries are prepped and ready to go, it’s time to discuss the method with which you’ll make them. Some people think that they can cut corners and the mess by using an oven, but Talde says it best when he told us, "If you don’t have a fryer, make mashed potatoes [instead]." Fries are called fries for a reason, so it’s time to invest in a deep-fryer, or break out a large skillet durable enough for frying (like a Dutch oven or cast-iron skillet). The oil that’s used is also important with this step. Many people extrapolate that the fries are so delicious and rich because they’re fried in some exotic ingredients, like beef tallow, but Talde ensures us that this step can be skipped. Because beef tallow is so hard to find, he likes using peanut oil to make his fries, because it has a great flavor and a high burning point.
