Long, skinny French fries .. are NOT EXTRUDED! Toldyaso! Don’t believe me? Watch this video! Yes, I win this argument! Muahahahaha!

Vinegar on fries? Ew! But that’s how those wacky Brits eat “chips”, I guess.

    Well, if would have used a little common sense,they would have realized that extruding potatoes would have created mashed potatoes. ^_^

    salt and vinegar is a good way to eat them (yes, it’s a brit thing), but i’ve also enjoyed them with tartar sauce and whipping cream (separately, of course)…

    FYI — some locations, like In ‘n Out, run each and every potato through a sieve blade that slices them whole with skin on: place the potato on the blade, bring the weighted lever down which forces the potato through the sieve/blade, and voilà, “french” fries…

    i prefer my french fries long and skinny, dipped in either curry mustard or salsa.

    Don’t forget the French-Canadian poutine. Cheese curds, gravy and fries. Only for the suicidal.

    Here’s a recipe:

    However, if you are eating your fries in a fast food joint then what you’re eating is extruded “mashed” potatoes. Cheaper and greater consistency.
