    Preparing the potatoes and having them ferment for a week is cheating. I mean, c'mon.

      There was a time - back in 60's - when McDonalds had the best fries you could buy. EVERYone knew this and ketchup was (never!!) used on those - or any sauce - ask anyone who was there!! They were hot & crunchy yet moist, almost sweet - made with LARD - and fabulous. The vegetarians (no "vegans" back then) and "health" nuts complained and OUT went the best fries you ever tasted. In came "Crisco" type fried fries which were much worse for your health (harden your arteries) and lost all crunch, moistness, and flavor. Todays McD's can't hold a candle to those original fries, cool down in seconds, and are hard dry tasteless little cardboard sticks. I really feel sorry for this generation; they have no idea how good a fry can be. They smother them in sauce/ketchup just to make them edible.

            Osmosis isn't the movement of salt, it's the movement of water

                How to do belgian way potatoes :
                1) cut potatoes
                2) put in in water for 5 mins.
                3) fry at 160-170 degrees for 3 minutes
                4) let it rest
                5) Fry it again at 190-200 degrees for 2-3 minutes to have a food Heart and a crispy crust.

                That's it, any other technique is irrevellant.
                A "French" Fry which is not double fried isn't a proper belgian style Fry.

                                    im sorry, but level 1, the fact that she added the fries to the oil before boiling the oil first is absolutely triggering me. that just makes them soggy af.

EVERYone knew this and ketchup was (never!!) used on those - or any sauce - ask anyone who was there!! They were crunchy - almost sweet - made with LARD people - and fabulous. The vegetarians (no "vegans" back then) and "health" nuts complained and OUT went the best fries you ever tasted. In came "Crisco" type fried fries which were much worse for your health (harden your arteries) and lost all crunch and flavor. Todays McD's can't hold a candle to those original fries, cool down in 2 munutes, and are tasteless cardboard anyway.
