Perfectly Simple French Fries
Home made French fries don't have to be messy or high in calories, and they don't need to be fried twice in a gallon of oil, as most recipes suggest. For perfectly simple home-cooked fries for four to six people, pour 2-1/2 cups of peanut oil into a large skillet, but -- this is important -- do not turn on the heat. Stir in two pounds of raw potatoes cut into strips. Now turn the heat to medium-high and cook until golden brown, about 30 minutes.
Note: These slow-cooked fries absorb only about 1-tablespoon of fat per serving -- much less than most people slather on a baked potato via butter or sour cream.
