Ingredients

  • Canola or other vegetable oil
  • 2 pounds medium Youkon Gold potatoes peeled

Equipment

  • If using an electric deep fryer fill and heat your vegetable oil according to the manufacturer's instructions. If you don't have one use enough oil in a deep heavy pot over medium-heat to measure a depth of about 3-inches. You will want to make sure that the pot is deep enough so that it is no more than half full of the oil. Heat the oil to 325ºF.
  • Crinkle cutter for slicing wedges or slice wedges with a kitchen knife. about 1/8-inch thick

Instructions

  • Heat 3 inches oil to 325°F in a heavy pot over medium heat.
  • While oil is heating, scrub potatoes, blot dry with a paper towel, and cut into 1/4-inch wedges with a crinkle cutter or kitchen knife.
  • Fry potatoes in several batches for 1-1/2 minutes per batch (potatoes will not be golden) and transfer with a spider or slotted spoon to paper towels placed on a baking sheet to drain. (Return oil to 325°F between batches.)
  • When all of the batches are done, heat the oil to 350°F. Refry potatoes in several batches until golden and crisp, about 4 to 5 minutes per batch, and transfer to clean paper towels to drain. (Return oil to 350°F between batches.)
  • Season chips with salt, pepper and fine ground parsley to taste.
