RE: French Fry question
When I bake them in the oven, I use Ore-Ida crinkle.
Home-made that I drop in the oil, I hand cut with a medium thickness.
When eating out, I prefer medium cut, straight fries.
I don't really like thin straight fries as there is not
enough meat to them.
Also, when I make them at home, the age of the oil has much to
do with the quality and taste of the fries, whether crinkle or straight cut.
The best tasting fries I've had were fried in lard rather than vegetable oil,
but that was many moons ago.
