French Fries

Tip: Matt likes them a little crispy so I usually cut them thin. If I'm feeling lazy and just want to get a few cooked fast I will cut them a little thicker.

Step 1: In a medium bowl, dissolve the 1/3 cup white sugar in 2 cups warm water. Soak 2 large russet potatoes (peeled, and sliced into ¼ inch strips) in water mixture for 15 minutes. Remove from water, and dry thoroughly on paper towels.

Step 2: Heat 6 cups vegetable oil (or enough to cover the fries) in deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Add potatoes, and cook until golden, 5 to 6 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Season with salt to taste. Get creative try seasoning with a little sugar or chili powder.
