Oil Fried French Fries CrispyFeb 25, 2016Published by Wendy
Improper prepared french fries get soggy and lack crispiness, while we don’t want that to happen. Then what cooking technique can we use to get crispy fries? Do you find it difficult? Don’ worry, here we give you some tips. And we can offer you high quality French fries making machines for you.
1. Use high starch potatoes.
Potatoes are all about starch and water. High starch has a dry, mealy texture. They are ideal for French fries. Russet is the king of the low moisture-high starch category. It is best for french fries. 99% of Idaho’s potatoes are Russets, so many stores call Russets Idahos. You can also use all-purpose potatoes. They have a moderate amount of starch and moisture and can be used in any potato recipe.
2. Cut them into thin strips after washing and peeling.
This ensures even cooking of the individual fries. The smaller the strips the easier it is for them to get crispy. Thinner strips get larger surface area, so that there is more surface area for water to evaporate. By using our potato cutting machine, the thickness could be adjusted freely. You could also use it to cut round or crinkle slices for making potato chips. Remember to rinse off the extra starch after cutting so that your fries not to be soggy.
3. Dehydration before frying.
If something contains a lot of water, it will be hard to get crispy. Our French fries dehydration machine adopts centrifugal principle to dry off the surface water of potato strips after washed and blanched. The heavy base, self-center marker and shock absorber all contribute to a stable performance without vibration.
4. Deep fryer with temperature control.
The electric oil-water mixed fryer has double temperature control. You can set the temperature of oil freely. The temperature of water is cooled by natural wind and automatic cold water cycling system. Accurate temperature ensures you make the crispy french fries.
5. Fry the French fries twice.
Fry the French fries once at a lower temperature until cooked through with a slightly golden color, and then a second time at a higher temperature till the fries turn golden brown and crispy. After the fist fry, remove the fries and drain, let them stand at room temperature for 15 minutes. Or refrigerate them in an freezer until ready to use them. A tougher surface and cooler interior give the chip more time to develop that essential crunchy shell before it burns.
6. Deoiling with the help of machine.
The de-oiling machine has the same structure with the dehydration machine, except that it has different speed. De-oiling machine helps remove the extra oil on the surface, makes it not so greasy.
