Homemade French Fries

French fries does not mean that this fries came or originated in France. French in cooking means slicing vegetables or meat into thin strips almost like julienne.It was believed that in 1802 french fries were serve at the white house dinner as ordered by Pres. Thomas Jefferson, but during that time the name is not yet french fries, but potatoes were serve in french manner and as time goes by in some places also they have this version of cooking the potatoes and it is now a popular fast food item called french fries. Patates Frites as French called it. In  Philippine food chain stores the term french fries is being used. Since it is weekend, I decided to post this recipe, because most of the weekends moms and dads stay with their kids at home. Just in case you want to have something to munch for the weekend with your loved ones,  french fries is an affordable and easy to serve. Happy weekend everyone. :).

2 potatoes ( frenched or julienned)
a dash of salt and pepper
Oil for frying

1. In a big bowl put the sliced potatoes and dash it  with salt and pepper.
2. Heat the oil and deep fry the potatoes, increase the heat when it is almost done to make sure that it is crispy.
3. Put in a a paper towel and serve it hot with ketchup or mustard.
