My grandmother, then my mom, then as far as I know out of four children, JUST me, but bet I can easily force my sisters to eat on them fries. (I recall stuff they don't but at times they recall stuff I don't, I am big on the food memory lane.) So its really a simple recipe but one that excited me when I recalled it that I felt I must post just in case someone else was wanting to join me and my family in this enjoyment.

How To Make the french fry treat in my family

  • 1
    Once you get the potatoes cut up, I like to put them in cold water and toss in the fridge for about 30 minutes to an hour. I have actually cut up way too many potatoes and fried them next day and next day, as long as looking good.
  • 2
    The wet potatoes will be rolled into the cornmeal and salt mixture. Then fried in the oil or Crisco.
  • 3
    Once done, drain as you see fit. Then if more salt needed, salt them and eat them and wonder why it took so long for you to ever make these.
