Malt Vinegar Fries

Malt Vinegar Fries Recipe

Fries are my weakness. Really, any type of potato.

From fast food favorites such as McDonald’s, to the plethora of do-it-yourself versions you can find online from both amateurs and professionals, there’s no shortage of different varieties one can explore to find their favorite.

My favorite is one I’ve found from one of my favorite cooking shows, America’s Test Kitchen.

Naturally, after releasing my Flower City Flavor Company Bourbon Barrel Malt Vinegar, aged in barrels from Iron Smoke Distillery, I needed a recipe to showcase the traditional way to incorporate malt vinegar.

I created a masterful, yet simple, recipe that will make you never skip out on french fries again with this malt vinegar.

Enjoy this malt vinegar fries recipe, and be sure to also check out our malt vinegar aioli recipe which makes a fantastic dipping sauce for these fries!

What is Aioli?

The Merriam-Webster dictionary definition: a mayonnaise flavored with garlic and sometimes other ingredients (such as red pepper).

My own definition: A garlic lover’s dream come true!

Aioli has increasing become popular on gourmet burgers. I’m talking the type of burger you would find at both fast-casual, and higher-end restaurants.

There’s even a restaurant and food truck in Arizona named Aioli Burger that specializes in having different varieties of aioli in their burgers!

This doesn’t mean that aioli has to be limited to just be enjoyed when you are out with family and friends.

Check out my awesome malt vinegar aioli recipe you can make right at home, quick and easily!

This recipe is crafted with my own Bourbon Barrel Malt Vinegar.

I feel my version brings a distinctive brightness to the aioli overall compared to the generic store bought brands.

See my recipe below and then try it for yourself!

    So so good. The Flower City Malt vinegar is awesome and this recipe will be the only one I use moving forward when I make homemade fries.
