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.
