1/3 Cup(s) Sugar
2 Cup(s) Warm Water
2 Russett potatoes, peeled
Heat the oil in a deep saucepan over low-med. heat for about 20
minutes.In a med. bowl, mix the sugar into the water until dissolved.
Cut thepotatoes in half lengthwise, and then into 1/4" strips. Put the
potatoesinto the sugar solution and soak for 15 minutes. Remove the
potatoes anddry them thoroughly on paper towels. The right oil
temperature iscrucial here. To test the oil, fry a couple of potato
slices for 6minutes. Remove and cool, then taste. The fries should no
get too darktoo soon and should be soft in the middle. If the oil is
too hot, turnit down and test again. The fries should not be
undercooked, either. Ifthey are, turn up the heat. When the oil
temperature is just right, putall of the potato slices in the oil for 1
minute. This is the blanchingstage. Take the fries out of the oil and
let them cool. When the frieshave cooled, place them into the oil
again for 5 minutes, or untilgolden brown. Remove from the oil and
place on a paper towel-coveredplate. Salt to taste.Posted to MealMaster
