    Title: McDonald's French Fries - Copycat
    Categories: Potatoes
    Yield: 3 Servings

    8 c Cold water
    1/2 c Corn syrup
    3 tb Salt
    1 ts White vinegar

    6 lg Russet potatoes; 4.5 lb
    1 qt Oil
    1/2 c Vegetable shortening

    Combine the brine ingredients and set aside.

    Peel and rinse that potatoes.

    Slice them into strings just under 1/2". (A french fry
    potato cutter makes this easy.)

    Place them in the cold brine as you slice them. Ensure
    the potatoes are completely submerged. Add more cold
    water if needed.

    Cover and place the brine in the fridge for 2 hours or

    Drain and rinse them twice with cold water. Pat them
    completely dry.

    Heat oil to 300ºF/150ºC. A dutch oven and oil
    thermometer is very helpful.

    Fry the potatoes in batches for about 5 minutes. Remove
    with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towels. They
    will be very soft. (This is a good thing.)

    Add the vegetable shortening and increase the heat to
    400ºF/205ºC. Fry in batches again until golden brown.
    (It’s hard to be patient during this part.)

    Remove and place on paper towels. Season with salt
    right away and serve!
