6 medium (1kg) sebago or red delight potatoes, peeled
vegetable oil, for deep-frying
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
How to make french fries:
Cut potatoes into 4mm thick slices. Cut slices into 4mm thick sticks. Layer between sheets of paper towel to remove excess moisture. Stand for 10 minutes.
Heat oil in a wok or large deep frying pan over medium-high heat. Deep-fry potato, in batches, until potato rises to the surface and turns opaque. Using a slotted spoon, transfer fries to a tray lined with paper towel. Cool for 10 minutes.
Reheat oil. Deep-fry fries, in batches, for a further 2 to 3 minutes or until golden. Drain on paper towel. Transfer to a bowl. Add salt and pepper.
