Sweet juicy fruits.
Crisp seasonal vegetables.
Ice cold lemonade.
A sizzling grill.
And of course, French fries.
Here are two ways to make them; salty and perfectly fried, or remade into delicious healthful vegetable fries. Don’t forget to dip them into some sodium free gourmet mustard dipping sauce!
Frying French fries. Sounds simple enough, doesn’t it? But creating fries that are both crispy and tender is an art, and requires technique. Try these and you’ll understand.
These fries are a huge hit at our table, with adults and children alike. Kids love “colorful French fries.” Serve as a side dish, or as a tasty snack. They will disappear in no time!
Serve these in "frites cones" held in a wire stand like in the main image. A feats for the eyes.
This recipe is sodium free, fat free, and delicious. To make this faintly sweet and spicy mustard sauce calorie-free and sugar-free, replace the brown sugar with 1 tablespoon Splenda brown sugar. If you’re short on time and cannot make this gourmet mustard sauce in advance, sprinkle the fries with just a touch of vinegar, and then toss to combine. The vinegar will heighten the flavors of the fries. It’s my favorite way to serve them!
