Crispier French Fries
For your homemade French fries to be better, crispier outside and soft in the inside, you must follow these easy steps:

  • Peel them ahead of time and wash them.
  • Place them in a bowl filled with water and add a ¼ cup of vinegar to the water.
  • Let them sit in the vinegar water for about 15 minutes.
  • Wash them again
  • Put them in the bowl with water and salt and the juice of a lemon until you’re ready to fry them.

You must remember to dry them before you put them in the fryer.

Various French Fries Tips

  • To add flavor to your French fries, sprinkle them with garlic or onion salt instead of common salt.
  • Wash your French fries with hot water instead of cold water to remove more starch so they don’t stick together when they dry.
  • Put some unpeeled garlic cloves into the oil when you fry your French Fries and they will taste great.
  • Your French fries will taste great if you squeeze a lemon on them before you fry them.
  • Sprinkle some flour on your French fries before frying them and they’ll have a great golden color when they are done.
  • Never put too many potatoes in a frying pan. They will take longer to cook and they will not get crispy as easily.

Before frying French fries
Never leave French frying potatoes in water for too long before frying them. They will absorb too much water and they will take longer to cook and they could be soggy. Soak potatoes for just a short time and dry them with a paper or cloth towel.

Fry bacon without splattering

Separate the bacon slices and place them between a double thickness of paper towels in a microwave safe dish.
Then cook on high as follows:

2 slices, 2 ¼ to 2 ¾ minutes; 4 slices, 4 to 4 ½ minutes; 6 slices, 5 ½ to 6 ½ minutes.

Halfway through the cooking, rotate the dish.
