Serves 4 as a starter
Cook Time 30 minutes
4 large russet potatoes, peeled and cut into fries
12 ounces duck fat
1 tablespoon parsley, minced
1 clove of garlic, finely minced
salt and pepper
Place the potato fries into a bowl of cool water for 5 minutes to remove some of the starch. Take the fries from the water and blot them dry really well. Let the fries sit on a dry paper towels while you heat the fat.
Heat the duck fat in a large saucepan over medium high heat until the temperature reaches 330 degrees. Place the fries, one by one, into the oil. Maintain the heat and cook for 6 minutes until golden brown.
Remove the fries from the fat and allow them to rest for 10 minutes while you raise the heat of the fat to 360. Place the fries into the duck fat and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes or until the fries are crispy and dark golden brown.
Immediately after removing the fries, season liberally with salt and pepper and sprinkle over the garlic and parsley. Dip into garlicky aioli for a real treat!
