Taster’s Cherce

When I was a kid my mother would make a homemade mayonnaise whenever she made french fries. Cause that’s how they roll in Belgium. That never made any sense to me because as an American kid I never imagined dipping a fry in anything but ketchup. I still prefer ketchup but also dig mayonnaise, or just salt, or salt and vinegar. Or any number of things.

What’s your favorite condiment for fries?

Yeah, just some Maldon salt.

A little bit of salt and pepper, thank you. The problem I run into is that many places put too much salt on their fries. If I'm lucky and they don't salt them at all, I sprinkle just a little bit to get a hint. I usually replace salt with pepper anyway, although too much of that's no good either.

Vinegar and some Old Bay seasoning sprinkled on 'em is damned tasty!!!

Dijon mustard.

I'm so there with homemade mayo. Pepper and sea salt works.

Ketchup is ok too.

As long as the fries are crunchy.

Mayo is my fav, but I sometimes like to mix ketchup with whatever hot sauce I'm digging at the moment. Ketchup with a bite.

And don't forget cheese fries. Yummy.
