How many kinds of preparing French fries do you know? What are you using: cooker, microwave oven, fryer(friteuse) etc. What kind of oil do you use (sunflower oil, palm oil, olive oil etc.)? Do you have some "secret" ingredients for the best taste?

the trick is to fry them twice. Once with lower heat (325), for about 8 minutes or so, then take them out and shock them in a bath of ice water mixed with some rice flour. Dry them off, and then put them back into the oil which you have heated to 375 for about 3 minutes. They will be amazingly crisp, and the rice flour keeps them from being too soggy. I use peanut oil, but the best is to use peanut oil with some bacon fat melted in. Yum! As for choice of potato - russets seem to work the best.

I prefer to bake french fries in the oven and not deep fry them . I prefer this method more for health reasons than taste.
