Instructions
To Prepare Potato French Fries for Freezing
  1. Scrub your potatoes, peel, rinse well, and pat dry with a kitchen towel.

  2. Fill a large bowl with cold water.

  3. Cut the potatoes into 1/2-inch French fry shapes. Place the cut potatoes in the bowl of cold water as you work.

  4. Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. While the pot is heating up, fill a large bowl with cold water and ice.

  5. Working in batches, blanch your fries by dropping them into the boiling water. Boil each batch for 5-minutes.

  6. Remove the blanched fries and drop them into the ice water. Let cool for at least 15-minutes.

  7. Remove and dry well with a clean kitchen towel.

  8. Lay out on a parchment lined sheet pan and freeze.

  9. Store frozen fries in a zipper bag for up to 3 months. 2 pounds of potatoes fits into a quart sized bag.

To Bake Frozen French Fries:
  1. Preheat your oven to 450°F.

  2. Spray a sheet pan with avocado oil.

  3. Spread out the frozen French fries on sheet pan, spray with more avocado oil, and bake in a preheated oven until brown and crispy, about 12-15 minutes. Turn about half way through.

  4. Season French fries and serve warm.
