1 or 2 potatoes per person
Wash the potatoes and slice them very, very thin, leaving the peeling on the potatoes. Place them in ice water until ready to fry. Heat oil to 350 degrees. Carefully drop a handful of potatoes at the time in the oil. Do not overcrowd or they will boil and not fry. Fry until potatoes are at the desired texture.
If you want, medium raw fries or a little soft,
take potatoes out as soon as they being to turn brown.
For crunchy raw fries,
leave the potatoes in the oil until they are golden brown.
