Our local grocery store often has 2 ten pound bags of potatoes on sale for $5.00 and I can't ever pass up that bargain. I generally buy about 30-40 pounds of potatoes a month. I dehydrate much of it but I also make and bag up a lot of homemade french fries and today I am going to tell you how I do it.
Our family really enjoys french fries but I like making things from scratch so I know exactly what goes into the things my family eats. But having the time and energy to cut up potatoes every time my family wants french fries is an issue at times. Now, when I have extra time and potatoes, I just prepare them and bag them up and pop them in the freezer and they are ready to go when we need/want them.
First just peel your potatoes and slice them into french fries. We prefer the "steak" style of french fries but you can cut them like shoestring french fries if you wish. As you are cutting the potatoes, place the peeled and cut potatoes into a bowl of cold water to keep them from turning brown.

Now, put the pan of french fries into the freezer for 1-2 hours to flash freeze them. Once they are partially frozen, just remove off the pan and place into a large baggie. You do this so that the french fries will not stick together. Anyway, now you just put the baggie of french fries into your freezer until you are ready to use them. Remove and cook them like you would do a bag of store-bought french fries. :-)

French Fries make a great side dish to Goulash or Pulled Pork Sandwiches!
