You know the frozen store bought fries are amazing in the air fryer. I am not sure I had ever bought a bag of frozen fries before getting the air fryer and we’re now on our 4th or 5th bag of them. Today I wanted to try making homemade fries. I always feel like I have clarify . . these may or may not be “homemade” because I bought the potatoes! 🙂
To make these, the potatoes are peeled, if desired, and cut into strips. Then they’re placed in ice water for at least half an hour, drained, tossed with a little olive oil and placed in the fryer. I set mine at 390° for about 12 minutes. They tasted just like homemade fries but honestly, I think I like the frozen fries better. It could be because the potatoes I’ve been buying lately are pretty sad looking and not very tasty but until I have a fresh crop of potatoes in the garden, I think I’ll stick to store bought frozen fries.
