Alton Brown's Perfect French Fries
I haven’t made “real” fries since coming to Canada over three years ago. And before that it must have been a year at least since I made them, and then it was the very odd time. Oven fries were my go to when I made fries, mainly for health reasons.
But there is something special about a “real” fried fry. It is just so much better tasting. And after making the fried chicken I took a notion for “real” fries I just couldn’t shake. So, I decided to just make them and get it over with.
Oh, they were good.
And they brought me to a realisation.
When you are tiny your parents know everything, then you grow into a teenager and they know nothing, then you grow some more and get a job and realise they really do know everything after all.
I know my Mom is a great cook, I have always known it. But it was only when I read this recipe from Alton Brown for the “Perfect French Fries” that I realised that my Mom really, really does know everything....
