How do you drain oil from French fries?

Always use a slotted spoon to transfer food to hot oil to prevent the dough from clumping. Then use that spoon to remove the food from the pan so it does not sit in the pool of oil. Drain the fried food onto paper towels for 1-2 minutes. The towel will absorb any external oils that may still be clinging to them.
