The secret behind how to make fries... the best Belgian fries recipe! How are classic Belgian fries prepared? Everything you want to know about fries!
1. Peel the potatoes. Don't rinse them!
2. Now place the potatoes on a clean chopping board and slice off a little sliver from the side. This will help us to slice the fries evenly in thickness. Slice the potato into even slices: they should be about a little less than half an inch (1 cm) thick. If at the end the last slice is too thin, discard it or keep it for another recipe.
3. Then place the slices side by side and cut them into even thick sticks: about a little less than half an inch (1 cm) thick as well. If you feel comfortable enough, you can stack the potato slices on top of each other and cut them all at the same time into thick sticks.
4. If there are much thinner potato sticks, again discard (thin fries will burn much quicker than the thick ones) or keep them for another recipe.
