Why not consider making these cool looking fries too?
-Slowly heat 2 inches of oil (preferable one with a high smoke point) in a deep pot (cast iron works well).
-Cut 5-8 potatoes into long thin slices.
-Rinse potatoes in several changes of cold water and spread out to dry in one layer on some towels.
-When the oil is hot, carefully add a handful of the potatoes, making sure not to crowd them.
-Cook until well browned, about 4-5 minutes, turning once.
-Remove with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel lined tray.
-Salt and serve warm, perhaps with some garlic aioli?
