Canola oil is a great choice for high heat cooking. It has one of the highest smoke points of all commonly used vegetable oils at 468 °F (242 °C), just a couple of degrees lower than peanut oil's smoke point.


Classic Canola French Fries



Ingredients:

  • 4 to 5 large potatoes, red or russet or sweet potatoes
  • 8 cups canola oil 2 L
  • salt to taste

Instructions:

1. Cut potatoes into uniform length and thickness for even cooking. Preheat canola oil to a frying temperature of 375 °F (190 °C). To cook French fries properly, it is important to maintain this frying temperature. You may wish to increase the temperature slightly before adding potatoes as oil temperature will drop when food is added.

2. Fry for 4 to 6 minutes to blanch. Remove French fries from canola oil with slotted spoon, drain on paper towels.

3. Just before serving, fry a second time for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. Remove French fries from canola oil with slotted spoon. Drain on paper towels and season to taste. Serve with remoulade or Honey Bee’s Dipping Sauce.

Yield: 10 servings.
