Ingredients Add to grocery list

6   large red potatoes, skins on
Oil, for frying
1   large sweet onion
Salt and pepper


Using a large pot, boil potatoes with skins on until almost done.  Allow to cool, and cut potatoes into long strips, approximately 1/4 to 1/2 inch wide and thick.  In a large pot or fryer, heat oil to 350 degrees.  Par fry the potatoes for 5 to 6 minutes.  Potatoes should be limp.  Remove potatoes and place onto paper towels and allow to drain.  Let sit for one to two hours at room temperature.

Cut onions into 1/2 inch wedges.  Just before serving time, place potatoes and onions into oil heated to 375 degrees for 3 to 5 minutes, or until brown.  Remove fries from oil, drain on paper towel, and while still hot, season with salt and pepper.
