Great Earth French Fries

When I was still working in BPO, the majority of the employees will go to coffee shops for their coffee or latte but I’m not a coffee drinker so if I’m feeling stress, I will go to McDonald's which is just a few minutes walk from our office. Fries is one of my comfort foods and until now it is my usual order if I will eat at fast food. 

Last year, when community quarantine started, my husband bought fries and mojos so if we are craving for chips, we can cook them at home. We just buy a pack of fries depending on our budget and what is available in the supermarket. If you’ve been reading my blog, you will notice that I’ve been sharing Great Earth products and this is the fourth one. It just so happened that we only visit Landers for the past several months so yun lang naman ang option and so far, satisfied naman kami sa mga natry namin. 


And because of that, two months ago, I also bought this Great Earth French Fries. One pack is PHP116.75 for 2 lbs. I have cooked this last week because I want to test our new Philips Air Fryer HD9270. Yey, I’m so happy that I already crossed it out on my wishlist. I will post my review in a separate post. 


If you don’t have an air fryer, you can follow this cooking instruction. But even I don’t have an air fryer, to save time, I will just deep fry my fries in 6-7 minutes, no need to bake it in the oven. 

1. Fry each batch, turning frequently, for 3 to 4 minutes or until the fries are a pale blond color and limp.
2. Remove with a mesh skimmer to the baking sheet lined with paper towels 
3. Increase the heat of the oil to 375F. Fry the potatoes again, in batches, turning frequently, until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. 

Using the air fryer, I just cook this for 13 minutes at 200C. Then I add my favorite flavoring which is cheese and sour cream, this is my usual order at Potato Corner. I’m glad that I can prepare my own fries at home and much cheaper. When I first cook this, I followed the cheatsheet guide so I cooked the fries for 15 minutes time, the result is a little bit dry so I reduced the time to 13 minutes. I suggest you download a cheatsheet and try it, then adjust it according to your preference. Don't forget to take note of your own settings.
