Happy National Potato Month & a Favorite Spud Recipe

PotatoesYup…It’s National Potato Month in September, and we’re kicking off with some deliciousness!

It’s hard to believe that the humble potato goes from living in the dirt underground to gracing the tables of the poorest to the elite dining of the most rich & famous.

Filled with nature’s goodness, we have found hundreds of ways to prepare this wonderful food.

From the favored French Fry to Potatoes Romanoff, and everything in between. They are unquestionably delicious & versatile.

When a potato is peeled, you come across little eyes, which we just gouge out & discard, but if those eyes are reserved and planted in soil, you could get a new potato plant!

Trying this with out children could give them an example of nature’s way of replenishing itself.

My family’s favorite way to eat potatoes is French Fries. I used to deep fry them in hot oil, directly on the stove, but I have moved up to an electric deep fryer.

Deep Fried Potatoes:

Type: Side Dish Recipe
Prep Time: ~ 10 min
Cook Time: ~ 20 min
Serve With: Coconut Chicken Fingers, Fish-Friday, Malt Vinegar


  • potatoes
  • oil – peanut, vegetable, canola, etc.
  • salt – to taste


  1. Preheat electric deep fryer with proper amount of oil, according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  2. Wash potatoes. Peel, if desired, but not necessary.
  3. Cut potatoes into desired size and shape – French fries, steak fries, shoestring, medallions…
  4. Thoroughly dry all potatoes with linen tea towel or paper towels to soak up any excess liquid the potatoes have on them or leech before cooking.
  5. Put potatoes in fry basket that comes with your deep fryer and close the lid securely, as directed.
  6. Depending upon your machine, it likely will take 4 – 7 min before the timer goes off or they are golden brown upon inspection.
  7. Drain on paper towels quickly before serving, if desired, and sprinkle salt and/or seasoning of choice.

Voila! You have golden, crispy, tasty fries.

There’s nothing better. Try this recipe! ~ Ingrid Turner
