How to make homemade frozen french fries for air fryer or oven.
If you prefer everything to be homemade and from scratch, like me, just peel a bunch of potatoes, cut them the way you like and freeze.
Freeze fries in layers, so they don’t stick together. Once all frozen, you can dump them all in one bag.
I like to make my own frozen fries and then keep them in a big ziplock bag in my garage chest freezer.
Make sure to close it well to prevent it from soaking freezer smell.
Well, let me tell you, air fryer is so good for making french fries! Almost mess free and when i cook it with my kids, it entertains them a lot and i am not scared that they can get a burn, like it happens with the oven.
