French Fries & Salt: The Perfect Pair

  • August 13, 2021

The aroma of hot, crisp, fresh fries is all it takes. The delicious smell, along with a powerful combination of starch, salt and fat create a flavor and mouth feel that can be difficult to resist. But like any great dynamic duo – think peanut butter and jelly, bacon and eggs, cinnamon and sugar – French fries also have a perfect partner that helps create their iconic status – salt.

In the world of French fries, Kosher salt is a fry’s best friend. With a coarse texture, Kosher salt is easy to pinch, allows for more precise measuring and control, and has superior adhesion to stay on the fry’s surface.

Sysco Classic Kosher Salt is perfect for salting fries right out of the fryer, but it also has superior blending capabilities and is great for crafting specialty seasoning rubs that will take your fries over the top!

Here are five unique recipes to inspire your own french fry and other culinary creations!
