You put vinegar on your fries?
What part of Rhode Island are you from?

Not the way I like my fries. IMHO: The English chip is the peak of the art. Plump, dry and fluffy on the inside, crisp on the outside. Takes about 20 minutes.

If we had an In-and-Out burger nearby, I would enjoy my fries "well done" - much less work, for pretty good fries.

I don't get the cold water simmer.

So he put them in cold water then turned the heat on brought up to a simmer and then did that for 20 minutes?

I took one look at that guy and decided he can't tell me how to farking make french fries.

Why is malt vinegar shocking to some of you? Try it and you'll see why it's so good on fries. Regular vinegar is crap.

Cut them. Boil them a bit. Dust with corn starch or flour. Fry them. Done.

2 hours to get fries? That is dumb.

No don't worry you meant to say chips. Our fries are their chips, their crisps are our chips. bah, the rabbit hole. It deepens.

Douche claims to be making perfect fries while peeling the potato.

I wash the potato, put it in a apple slicer (with the peeler disengaged). Slice half way through the now spiral-cut potato and then cut the cylindrical potato core into four long fries. C-shaped potato curls with skins and naked straight fries. I do the double fry that he mentions though - three minutes at 250 deg F, dry, then raise the oil up to 375 to cook the outside crisp. His pre-simmer and cooling steps are just wasted energy and time.

Just made some homemade fries last night (for poutine, no less), so I'm getting a kick...

I prefer mozzarella cheese instead of curds, but yes gravy, cheese and fries are awesome.

Good, now teach In-n-Out how to make french fries that don't taste like damp starch. (And then teach them to make burgers that don't taste like someone crapped in them.)

I use farmer's cheese that I break up into chunks. Mostly because you can't get fresh curds around here.

White Castle fries only come in one size.

No thanks, I absolutely refuse to deep fry anything in the house. I HATE that smell and it sticks around for hours.

He didn't. He told you how to cook chips.

Congratulations, you limey English d-bag, you have invented greasy deep-fried potato croquettes.

The only time a french fry touches water is when you throw it in icewater between the first and second frying, to temporarily arrest the cooking process.

The only fry recipe you'll ever need. One step, less oil, great fries. The only fiddly step is when to pull them out, a few minutes can make a diff in the texture, so I test one every minute or so near the end.
