There’s one favorite food I have in common with my kids… french fries. My kids loved crispy french fries and there’s something about eating fries that takes me back to being a kid. You know going out to eat with your family and being too short that your feet don’t touch the ground, so you dangle your feet off the bench and dip your fries in the ketchup, just happy to be.
When I’ve tried to make fries at home, they come out soft and not nearly as fun to eat as those we’ve had at various restaurants. I’ve tried a dozen recipes for french fries, and still never got them quit right until I discovered the double fry method and one special ingredient that often goes overlooked when I’m looking at my spice rack.
