Finishing the Fries

As you can see by now, most of the important steps of making McDonald’s fries come from the prep. Once they’re cooled, they’re ready for the actually frying, which is a simple process that starts at 275 degrees for a pre-fry, and then at 375 degrees for about five minutes, or until crisp and golden brown. And while you may think the fries are heavily salted (even Talde does), we chose to believe McDonald’s when they say they don’t use that much salt, and we salted every 2 cups of ours with 1 tablespoon of fine sea salt, to replicate that "heavily salted" taste and appearance. Exact McDonald’s fries may not be possible at home, but this version gets you close enough.
