French fries fried crispy

Particularly crispy French fries are the result of a combination of several work steps.

Material needed :

  • Deep pot or deep fryer with basket
  • Sufficient heat-resistant oil
  • slotted spoon
  • paper towels
  • Big bowl
  • chef’s knife
  • cutting board

Ingredients :

  • Big waxy potatoes
  • salt
  • Optional: other spices such as paprika, cayenne, curry, cumin etc.


  • Depending on your preference, peel or not peel the potato
  • Cut the potatoes into batonnets (sticks with an edge length of approx. 8 mm).
  • Place potato sticks in bowl of cold water
  • Soak in cold water for about 1.5 hours
  • Pour oil into the pot, it must not be more than half full (follow the operating instructions for deep fryers)
  • Heat oil to 150°C
  • Drain the potato sticks in a colander, drain well on paper towels and pat dry
  • Put the potato sticks in batches in the hot oil
  • Fry for 4-6 minutes
  • Remove with a slotted spoon and place on paper towels to drain
  • Do the same with the other portions
    –> From here you can either freeze the potato sticks and fry them à la minute or process them immediately
  • Further processing: Heat the oil to 180°C
  • Fry the potato sticks in batches until golden
  • Remove with the slotted spoon
  • Drain well in a colander and place in a large bowl
