Homemade French Fries - A great way to save money and healthier too!

Homemade French Fries are a great way to save money.   By making your own french fries not only do you save big but you are also to provide your family with a non processed version of french fries.  I like to stock up on bags of potatoes at the store when they are on sale. Then I take an afternoon and make these french fries and store them in the freezer for when I need them. My boys like them better than the store bought frozen bag ones and I like that it is a lot cheaper to make them than to buy them.

  1. I love this idea! Thanks!

  2. Healthier than frying and more economical. Could you also make these fries with the skin on?

  3. Exactly how long do u boil them in the water for? What consistency are u looking for?

      You boil for 6 minutes then flash freeze for an hour. This helps the fries to be soften in the center for when you bake them. Hope this helps!
