Technique tip: For additional portions, repeat steps 2-5 using the same oil.
In a deep, heavy pot, heat the canola oil to 350 F.2.
Peel and core Granny Smith apple and cut into 1/4-inch french fry-shaped slices.3.
Place the apple fries into a mixing bowl, add the cornstarch, toss gently and fully coat fries with cornstarch, ensuring an even layer covers each fry.4.
Slowly place fries into oil to avoid burns and allow to cook for 30 seconds. Gently agitate fries around to ensure an even cook and reduce sticking. Finish cooking for an additional 2 minutes. Once finished cooking, remove fries from oil, shake off excess oil and place into a clean mixing bowl.5.
Immediately dust fries with the cinnamon sugar, ensuring fries are fully coated. Serve fresh with whipped cream and caramel or ice cream.
