I know you do not know most of these. Well, the best French Fries are made with Russet Burbank. Burbank is the name of the guy who modified the Irish potato to make it more resistant to the diseases. As you all will guess these are the main product of Idaho.

Since we have chosen our potato now its time to prepare them to make Best French Fries.
