Directions:
For perfectly simple home-cooked fries for four to six people, pour 2 1/2 cups of peanut oil into a large skillet, but--this is important--do not turn on the heat. Stir in 2 pounds of raw potatoes cut into strips. Now turn the heat to medium-high and cook until golden brown, about 30 minutes. I use my electric frying pan set for 375*

Personal Notes:
Homemade French- fries don't have to be messy or high in calories, and they don't need to be fried twice in a gallon of oil, as most recipes suggest. These slow-cooked fries absorb only about 1 tablespoon of fat per serving--much less than most people slather on a baked potato via butter or sour cream.
