Real Belgian Fries
did you know that the belgians have perfected the art of the "french" 
fry? 
 
here's a recipe for people who don't mind taking the slow route to 
gastronomic nirvana 
 
 
real belgian fries (kitchen gardener style) 
 
potatoes 
frying oil (vegetable or peanut) 
a deep-fryer 
salt 
 
grow your own potatoes 
peel potatoes and cut into 1cm x 1cm sticks (.5"x.5") 
rinse potatoes to remove excess starch 
dry the potatoes and begin heating the deep fryer 
when the temperature reaches 160 c (320 f), put in a 
handful of fries and no more so as not to cool down the oil 
too much. 
fry for a few minutes (4-8 depending on the thickness and 
the kind of potatoes) stirring regularly to prevent sticking. 
put the fries into a large bowl lined with paper towels and 
let them cool down for 1/2 hour. 
heat oil to 190 c (375 f) and fry for 2-3 minutes until 
crispy and golden brown. 
serve with salt, mayonnaise, and a beer (the belgian way!)
