Homemade French Fries

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?
