I then heat some oil on the stove in a large pot. When the oil is hot, drop the potatoes in carefully. Let them cook until golden brown. You will need to swirl them around with a slotted spoon every now and again. Just use caution because of the hot oil. I use quite a bit of oil...enough to cover the fries. When they are cooked to your desire, spoon them out into a bowl lined with paper towels. Sprinkle generously with Kosher Salt and enjoy! Oh, I almost forgot the most important part of all...use lots of ketchup for dipping!!!!
If I didn't have a coat closet full of potatoes, I would not purchase Yukon Golds for this dish. I would purchase a cheaper potato at the grocery store. For me, the only thing that cost any money here was the oil. It does take a lot of oil to make good fries. However, I save my oil and reuse it for several more uses. To save my oil, I will wait until it is cool and pour it into quart jars. This way I get more bang for my buck!!
grace and peace,
