The World’s Best French Fries Can Be Found Right Here In Maine

Here in Maine, we know potatoes. Though we’re no longer the nation’s biggest producer of the versatile tuber, as we were back in the 1940s before production moved west, potatoes are still our most important crop. You can do so many delicious things with potatoes — bake ’em, mash ’em, grind ’em up and make ’em into hamburger buns. But we’re sure everyone is well aware of the very best potato preparation of all: French fries. And it’s not a coincidence that Maine, which owes so much to the humble potato, has turned it into the best fries on Planet Earth.
