|A kid's dream meal: shredded BBQ chicken sandwich, purple French fries, sliced apples, and raw carrots|
Purple French Fries
4-5 purple potatoes
1-2 white potatoes
vegetable oil for frying (enough to submerge fries)
sea salt, to taste
Peel and cut potatoes to desired shape (sticks or circles) and thickness, about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Soak in hot tap water for at least 15 minutes. While the potatoes are soaking, heat oil to 340 degrees. Thoroughly dry the potatoes and fill frying basket no more than half full. Slowly lower the fry basket into the oil. If it starts to bubble too much, bring the basket back up until the oil calms down then try lowering it again. Repeat as needed until the fry basket is completely lowered into the oil. If you are using a deep fryer, lower the cover and fry the potatoes for 6 to 7 minutes. Let the fries drain and cool for 10 minutes to up to 2 hours. Heat the oil to 375 degrees and fry for an additional 10 to 12 minutes right before serving. Salt to taste.
