How to Make It
In a pot, cover the potatoes with cold water. Add a large pinch of salt. Bring to a simmer and cook the potatoes until nearly cooked through, 6 minutes. Drain, pat dry and let cool. Wipe out the pot.
In the same pot, heat the oil to 375°. Line a baking sheet with paper towels. Working in batches, fry the potatoes until deeply golden, 7 minutes per batch. Drain the potatoes on the paper towels. Toss the fries with salt and Piment d'Espelette; serve.
The cost of the recipe is based on the amount of each ingredient used.
