As a salt and vinegar/anything pickled super fan, I am always looking for new ways to incorporate the holy combination of acetic acid and sodium chloride into my diet, so you can imagine my glee when Bon Appetit recommended I pickle french fries.
It is, in a word, genius. Watch the video above and click the link below for the full recipe (courtesy of Al's Place in San Francisco), but don't be intimidated; all you need to make these funky fries are potatoes, cabbage, and salt. Honestly, the hardest part is the waiting.
