Best Frying Practice Tips

To ensure your McCAIN fries always present and taste as appealing as possible, it’s important to follow ‘best practice’ cooking procedures. Here are some handy hints to pass on to your staff:
  • COOK FROM FROZEN WHERE POSSIBLE – frozen fries will absorb less oil during cooking
  • AVOID ‘DOUBLE DIPPING’ (REHEATING FRIES IN OIL) – this leads to greater oil absorption and adversely affects flavour and texture
  • COOK TO MANUFACTURER’S RECOMMENDED COOKING TIMES
  • SHAKE COOKED FRIES OVER THE FRYER and where possible, place on absorbent paper to remove any excess oil and grease
  • DON’T SPRINKLE SALT on fries before serving – many customers prefer unsalted fries
  • COOK TO ORDER and avoid holding for more than five minutes – this allows fries to stack better, so you’ll use less fries per portion
