Classic Canola French Fries
- 5 large potatoes, red or russet or sweet potatoes
- 8 cups canola oil 2 L
- 1 tsp salt 5 mL
- 1. Cut potatoes into uniform length and thickness for even cooking. Preheat canola oil to a frying temperature of 375 °F (190 °C). To cook French fries properly, it is important to maintain this frying temperature. You may wish to increase the temperature slightly before adding potatoes as oil temperature will drop when food is added.
- 2. Fry for 4 to 6 minutes to blanch. Remove French fries from canola oil with slotted spoon, drain on paper towels.
- 3. Just before serving, fry a second time for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. Remove French fries from canola oil with slotted spoon. Drain on paper towels and season to taste. Serve with remoulade or dipping sauce.

Cheddar Parmesan Poutine
These French fries are a playful spin on a Quebecois favorite - lightened up with canola oil. Traditionally made with cheese curds, poutine in this recipe features cheddar and Parmesan instead for sharper flavors.
