Real french fries are made by a machine that fires the potatoes at a grate.

It wasn't a very big gun.... good thing the kid shooting could (almost) aim. Imagine what kind of bruises a potato would leave?

Hmm.
It seems I've forgotten about this thread (like everyone else).

I'm guessing no one is going to try it because of the weather that most of us have to deal with. I may bump this up when the weather gets warmer if no one has tried it successfully.
