How Do I Prevent My Fries From Sticking Together When Frying?

Q:

After cutting my ribbon fries and dropping them in the fryer I have problems with the fries sticking together. What should the frying temperature be?

A:

Are you cutting and rinsing the potatoes to get rid of any excess starch and sugars? I’d try that and a minimum of 350 ° F, with the new canola and blended oils you can go up to 375° F.
