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


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?


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.
