Who doesn’t like French fries? However, some of the ones available to us at the fast-food restaurants are made with pesticide laden potatoes and fats that are not good for us. Bad fats are really hard on the body and can contribute to illness. The solution? Make your own! The best, most delicious French fries can be yours if you purchase organic potatoes and fry them in good quality animal fats like those found at Fatworks. The evidence is mounting that true fats are actually good for us. But they need to come from sources that are clean and healthy. Fatworks fits this bill.
To make the fries: Cut three or four organic potatoes into thin fries. Pat dry with a paper towel.
Heat up some good quality fat (duck, goose, lard and tallow are the best) and drop them in. Keep the fat at a medium heat; don’t let it smoke. Stir occasionally. After fifteen to twenty-five minutes, they will turn a golden brown.
The time varies due to the temperature of the fat. Drain and place on paper towels. Serve with aoili or ketchup. Yum!
