Preheat oven to 450 or Deep Fryer to 350 (Depending on how you want to cook your fries)
Peel potatoes, wash, and then chop them in to long medium-thick strips.
Place peeled and cut fries on paper towel or small towel to dry and sprinkle with salt.
If cooking fries in the oven place on cookie sheet lined w/ foil and place in oven when preheated. If deep frying drop them in the fryer for 10 - 15 minutes depending on how crispy you like them. If cooking in the oven cook 10-15 minutes and flip then cook another 10-15 on other side.
