At 71, I’m old enough to remember the TRULY original McDonald’s French fries, circa early 1960s. They were made onsite from whole potatoes with a specially-designed potato slicer, similar to a huge manually-operated apple corer. They were fresh and hot and in those days almost nobody knew beef fat from Shinola. By the way, the fries, burgers, and shakes were all priced at 15 cents each.
