What Potato Is Best For French Fries?

jayt90 | | Apr 10, 2009 12:56 PM

I like fries crisp on the outside, and creamy inside, with a real potato flavor.

Russetts and Idaho's seem to be preferred, but Yukon Golds have a following.
And I have heard that thin skinned Kennebecs are ideal, but hard to find.

How about aging the potato? A touch of frost? Toss when they start to soften or grow eyes?
What works for you?
