Turning a potato into fresh fries

Frying fresh fries starts with cutting the potatoes to the right size. Common sizes in the Netherlands are 11×11 mm or 12×12 mm. Some chefs choose to peel the potatoes, but in and around the skin are important vitamins such as C and B. Moreover, peeling leads to a weight loss of about 20% and requires extra handling from the operator.

With a Kiremko frying pan, you can pre-fry about 4 kilograms of potatoes at a time.

How to pre-fry fresh fries with a Kiremko fryer?

Set the Kiremko fryer oven between 140 – 150 degrees Celsius for pre-frying the fries. Fry the fries for about 7 minutes. The temperature will briefly drop to 120 degrees Celsius due to the temperature difference, but quickly recovers to the set value.

Pre-frying is a process of frying and moisture extraction, resulting in a weight reduction of about 20%, depending on the potato quality.

Check doneness by pinching a fry; the outside should be crispy, the inside soft. Every chef has their own method for frying fresh fries.

The fries need to rest

Remove the pre-fried fries from the Kiremko fryer and place them in the chipshelf to rest, at least 20 minutes. This cooling process provides extra crunch.

Frying fresh fries with a Kiremko fryer

Heat the Kiremko fryer to 172 degrees for frying the fries. Fry them for 2 to 2.5 minutes to perfection. Weight reduction of about 15% also occurs in this phase.

Salt, sauce and ready to go!

Remove the fries from the pan after 2 to 2.5 minutes, place them in the scoop tray, add salt, shake well and serve in a bag or bowl. And this is how you should fry fresh fries!
