Quantcast

If you make homemade french fries, do you leave the skin on or peel them?

    I don't deep fry anything at home but if I did I'd leave the skin on.

    I leave the skin on. I like them that way, plus I'm lazy. I hate pealing vegetables pius it makes such a mess so, unless it's really essential, I generally leave the skins on things.

    The peel/skin is where the nutrients are.

    I leave the skin on. Cut the fries, soak them in ice water for a good hour or so. Cook them for a few mins in 300 degree oil, drain them and then cook them in 425 degree oil til they float and then season them.

    I didn't know it's better if you soak them in water and then deep fry them twice. I haven't tried it but I'm going to.

    I dont remember what the "science" is behind soaking them in ice water, but doing that along with cooking them at 2 different temperatures gives you a good crispy french fry.

    Potato skins have nutrition in them, and they add taste & texture. We leave them for our mashed potatoes too. dirty mashed potatoes

    being a brit from the land that invented the "delicasy" called chips (not french fries) we peel the spuds first and then fry them until crisppy but not burnt. also they must be drained before eating. there are several types of chips......steak chips, fish chips ie: chips to eat fish with and thin chips (what you call french fries) are for putting in sarnies or crusty rolls.
    ok?

    Well, that's lovely......but the nutrition in potatoes, a gift to the world by the American Indians by the way, lies just under the skin. I like both & figure it's a matter of personal choice. Eat whatever you like....& thank an ignorant Savage for the item!
