The ultimate homemade frites

I shouldn't be doing this, but I'm giving away the secret frites recipe.

This recipe is radically different than your usual frites as you don't have to blanch these in at a lower temperature and then fry in a higher temperature.

Things you'll need -

Two russet potatoes
Peanut oil
A big pot

Peel your potatoes and cut into 3/8 inch sticks.

Rinse and dry these thoroughly.

Place your soon to be frites in the pot and fill with peanut oil until they are covered.

Please note, I didn't say to place your pot on a heat source. That's right, the oil and potatoes go in cold.

Take your pot with oil and potatoes, place on the stove over high heat.

Let them cook on high until a deep golden brown. They'll kind of look like they're over cooked.

Remove from the oil and salt.

If done right, these frites should be perfectly crisped and moist inside.

Serve with Dijon mustard of course.
