French Fries


-oil for cooking,

-a heavy pot or electric deep frier,

-a deep frying thermometer

-nice, unblemished Idaho or similar potato (do not use new potatoes).

Pour oil in pot or deep frier and heat to 325ºF. While oil is heating, peel the potato and trim to fit French fry cutter or cut them into fries with a 1/4 x 1/4 or 1/2 x 1/2 inch cross section. If using a frier with a basket, lower it into the oil for a minute to heat it. Put fries in basket and lower or *carefully* drop them into the hot oil. Do not try to cook too many at a time as it lowers the oil temp, about 1 1/2 cups is right. Cook for 3 minutes. This will seal the potatoes. Drain on paper towels and let sit for 20 minutes.

Bring oil temp up to 375ºF. Cook potatoes a second time for 4 minutes, or until browned as desired. Immediately drain well on paper towels and salt lightly. Serve warm.

Potatoes my be held up to 3 hours between first and second fryings.

Fried Potatoes With Poblano Pepper Strips


Vegetable oil for frying

3 TB oil

2 lg Poblano peppers

3/4 c sliced white onion

2 lb red potatoes, -- sliced 1/4 inch thick

Salt and pepper

1 c grated Monteray Jack cheese

Place vegetable oil in a deep saute pan to come no more than 1/3 of the way up the sides of the pan. Heat oil until a deep fat fry thermometer registers 360 degrees. Meanwhile, over an open flame, carefully char the peppers until the skin blisters and blackens. Set aside to cool. When the peppers are cooled, remove the seeds and slice into thin strips. Now, in a large non-stick skillet, heat 3 tablespoons of oil, add onion and cook until softened. When the oil is heated, carefully drop the potatoes into the pan, cook, stirring for 5 minutes or until tender, golden brown and crispy. Cook the potatoes in batches. Drain well on paper towels and add to the pan with the onions. Then, add the pepper strips, and season with salt and pepper. Finally, top with the cheese and cook for 1 minute. Transfer to a serving bowl and serve immediately.
