  1. TRIPLE COOKED. MEANS TRIPLE FRIED? THEY WOULD BE HARD AS STONE. I’LL HAVE TO C HECK THIS OUT. TRIPLE COOKING.

    • I wasn’t familiar with the process so I looked it up and it sounds pretty good!

      Triple cooked fries:

      Place the fries into a bowl of running water for 5 minutes to wash the starch off.

      Put the potatoes in a large saucepan and fill with cold tap water until potatoes are covered. Place the pan on medium heat and simmer until the potatoes are almost falling apart, about 20 minutes.

      Carefully remove the fires and place them on a cooling rack to dry out. Place the rack in the freezer to remove the moisture.

      Heat a deep pan no more than half filled with oil to 265F. Fry the fries in small batches until a light crust forms (about 5 minutes). Remove from the oil and drain on paper towels.

      Put the potatoes on a cooling rack and freeze again for an hour to remove even more moisture.

      Heat the oil to 350°F and fry the fries until golden (about 7 minutes). Drain and sprinkle with sea salt. Enjoy hot.
