6Potatoespeeled and chopped (we use a fry cutter but you could just cut them)
1/2cupOrganic unrefined coconut oil

Heat cast-iron frying pan with a good amount of coconut oil to medium-high (depending on stove). About a 1/4 - 1/2 inch coating the bottom of the pan. (We use two pans at once for more fries).
Once it's hot, add fries evenly in one layer in the pan. There should be enough oil to cover the entire bottom of the pan and cook all of the fries at the same time. If there isn't enough oil add some more, but not enough to cover the fries - we aren't deep frying them.
Let them cook for a while, and then flip the fries over - the goal is to have let the fries cook enough to have browned them on one side.
Let the fries cook again on the other side for a while, and then continue to flip them every 30 seconds or so as they cook. They should be a golden brown when there done. This process should take around 15-20 minutes or so.
Take the fries out and filter through a metal strainer to let all of the excess oil drip off. Save the oil in a mason jar in the fridge to reuse next time.
Sprinkle with real sea salt and enjoy!
