Using Citric Acid or Water so my French Fries Won’t Turn Brown

Q: I saw somewhere that said to use citric acid or vinegar in the water so your French fries won’t turn brown.  Which one is better to use and how much do you put into the water?
A: Use 1 tablespoon per gallon of water. Either the white wine vinegar or the concentrated lemon juice will work just fine.
