There's nothing more unsatisfying than munching on limp, soggy fries. But you don't have to install a deep fat fryer in your kitchen to get your fry fix. Turns out the secret to that restaurant-style crunch lies in your freezer:
After frying your fries for about a minute, shake off the excess oil, place them in a container and toss them in the freezer for a few hours. The moisture trapped inside the fries will freeze, forming tiny crystals, while the outside will solidify, creating that delicious crunch.
Apparently this tip works for other snacks like potato chips and bacon. If you do it right, then the outsides will retain a satisfying crunch while the insides will be deliciously soft.
