The Best French Fries in the Thumb are Available for Only One Week
Gibby’s Fresh Cut French Fries can only be found in the Upper Thumb at the Huron Community Fair for one week in August. This family-owned company is based in Traverse City. During the summer, Gibby’s Concessions travel around the state and can be found at county fairs, carnivals and special events. Gibby’s constantly ranks as the top fried spud in yearly peoples choice votes in the state.
Gibby’s Tasty Deep Fry Process
Their cooking process is simple but a bit unique. Freshly cleaned potatoes are sliced, then plunged into a series of six deep fryers. The last dip is this hottest to brown and crisp the creation. The resulting bit of gastronomic heaven is poured dripping golden brown into a paper boat container Then handed over the counter. Veterans of this process grab this scalding hot bunch of spuds with a paper towel and head to the side of the stand for dressing up. My choice is viniger and salt.
