Cook's Illustrated "Cold Oil" French Fries

Ernie Diamond | Apr 15, 2010 11:24 AM

I just read about Cook's Illustrated "cold oil" french fry method where the raw potatoes are added to room tempperature oil, brough to heat and fried for 20-25 minutes for a one-step, no fuss french fry.

Has anyone ever tried this? Thoughts?

I am glossing over the method somewhat, but not much. It is one of the shortest recipes I have seen in the magazine and I am eager to give it a try.
