French Fries: home-made and simply delicious.
To be able to create the perfect home made French Fries like the ones in the picture you first have to choose the right potatoes: the golden yellow is most suitable for frying.
Removing the skin is optional.
Wash and peel 2 potatoes and cut into even slices approximately 1/3 inch thick.
Heat a cup of your favourite vegetable, soya or canola oil in a large frying pan. Mr. Goudas brand recommended.
To test if oil is at the proper temperature place one slice of potato into the hot oil, if the oil starts to bubble, then you add the rest of the potato slices into the oil.
Shake the frying pan a couple times until all the slices of potato settle into the pan.
Occasionally, gently stir the potatoes so as not to break the slices until the golden colour is achieved.
On a serving plate, sprinkle sparingly and evenly with salt and black pepper, scoop potatoes unto the top of the plate and again sprinkle with a little bit of salt on top of the potatoes which are hot and oily.
The salt immediately melts the oil.
Enjoy the French Fries hot.
Do not be afraid of the little oil on the plate there is no cholesterol.
We hope you enjoy these home made French Fries with Mr. Goudas or Heinz Ketchup.
The gentleman in the picture, Spiros Haliotis, is one of the greatest potato lovers in the world.
Dear friends: Over the years, I have created many, many products and I have written many recipes.
I always have one thing in my mind when creating a recipe: I visualize that I am speaking to a beginner because people who know how to cook do not need my instructions they only need the best ingredients that I produce to work with.
I also have to mention that over the years, I have had numerous individuals correspond with me, by phone or my mail, locally, nationally or internationally, informing me that, for instance, their spouse who always did the cooking passed away recently, and that while looking through the cupboards they have found a can of beans or peas, a bag of flour or some product that they do not know what to do with.
Usually those people are the types who have no idea of what a casserole is, or a spatula, how to boil water or even turn on the stove.
Therefore, they are quite comfortable with the details in my recipes that allow them to become familiar with the cooking process, step-by-step.
Eventually, they would be able to do a variety of cooking and would always use my products.
Spyros Peter Goudas.
