Step 1: Preheat oven to 200 degrees. In a large bowl add cold water to soak the potatoes in as you peel and cut them. Set aside.
Step 2: In a large fryer, or Dutch oven, heat oil to 320 degrees.
Step 3: Peel potatoes, then cut fries into 1/4 inch x 1/4 inch fries of equal length.
Step 4: Place potatoes in the large bowl of cold water as you cut the potatoes into fries(I like soaking my cut potatoes about an hour before frying, and I add a tray of ice cubes to the water, to make it really cold).
Step 5: When you are done cutting the potatoes into fries, and ready to fry them, drain potatoes thoroughly, removing any excess water.
Step 6: When oil reaches 320 degrees, submerge the potatoes in the oil. (It is a good idea to use a thermometer so the oil is the right temperature).
Step 7: Separate potatoes into small batches, and fry each batch for 2-3 minutes, until they are pale and floppy. Remove from oil, drain, on a cookie sheet with paper towels (so the oil absorbs) and cool to room temperature.
Step 8: Increase the temperature of the oil to 375 degrees.
Step 9: Re-fry small batches of the fries, and fry each batch until crisp and golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Remove to a cookie sheet, salt with Kosher or Seasoned salt, then place in the oven as you are doing the next batch, so they don't get cold.
Step 10: When all the fries are done, serve with ketchup, Malt vinegar or your favorite dipping sauce.
