If you read Recipes For Joy In Life, you may be familiar with my early
days making Freedom fries. I would save the drippings when I fried bacon as
well as the fat from pork, beef and chicken and add them to a can that I would

eventually use for deep frying. Besides those potatoes, I also did a batch of
donuts and may have been a big threat to the success of Dunkin' Donuts.
Yeah, right! Needless to say, the french fries had great flavor, but weren't
very healthy for anyone. You can still enjoy that potato delicacy but use
canola oil. There's a better option than that. I bake the cut up potatoes in the
oven - they look just like fries and taste great, too. You might say that I have
gained freedom from the grease and still have the security of comfort food.
