When my mother would make these, half of them would disappear before they ever made it onto the dinner table. Sneaky kids!
Makes 6 servings.
salt and pepper
heavy pot for frying
2 large paper bags (optional)
Backstory: When my brothers, Charles and Jackie, were teenagers, I can remember trying my best to get my hand in the bag to get a "sample" of fries before they were all gone. We ate so many of those "samples" that Mom would be afraid of not cooking enough for the meal!
Backstory #2: The story goes...my brother, Jackie, once asked his wife, Jane, "Why can't you make French fries like Mom's?" Well she learned how and has perfected them so much that they're ALMOST as good!
