can you freeze french fries made from Yukon Gold Potatoes?
- ckngbbblsLv 71 month ago
you can freeze any french fries you made from what ever potato you have BUT they must be partially cooked or they will turn to mush. the fries you buy frozen have already been fried once and any frozen potato you buy is already cooked. Raw potato of any kind breaks down to watery mush when thawed.

How much did you make ? Fries make great side dish leftovers Re-heat in a regular oven or toaster oven to keep them crispy.

You can freeze raw and cooked French fries made from Yukon Gold potatoes

Yes you can.
To prevent them from turning brown...Fill a mixing bowl with water and stir in some 'Fruit-Fresh' powder. Dump the cut fries in the water and let stand a few minutes. Drain thoroughly and then freeze.

Cooked? No. Raw, sure.

You can certainly freeze the sliced raw french fries but I wouldn't freeze french fries that have already been cooked.
Bring a 3 quart sauce pan of SALTED water to a rolling boil.
Cut them into french fries about twice as thick as McDonald's french fries. Err on the side of thicker if you aren't sure.
Drop your fries, a handful at a time, into the boiling water and blanch for about 5 minutes.
While it's boiling get yourself a large bowl of ice water large enough to accommodate the fries.
When the 5 minutes are up, remove from the boiling water and put into the ice water bath. Drain them well in a colander. Place them onto a few sheets of paper towel and pat dry.
This is where it gets a little funny. You need to make sure when you put them in the freezer, they won't all stick together. Aside from that little speedbump it's pretty easy to parboil and freeze french fries.
