½ tbsp. cayenne pepper

The secret to my perfect fries every time!!

Cut potatoes into shoestring style fries. Place in boiling water for 2 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towels. Add them a few batches at a time to oil heated to 350 (about 4-6 cups) in a deep fryer or Dutch oven. Fry for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and salt to taste :). No more crispy on the outside and raw on the inside!!! Life changing!!!

You should soak them in water for an hour to remove the starch. Fry for 1-2 min...dry off...fry again for 1-2 min. It's how we make restaurant perfect fries. Removing the starch is key. Starch free, double fried. 😉
