The budding chef starts off by getting a large bowl of water and adding an unlikely ingredient – sugar – into it.
Set it aside and next you grab your main ingredient, potatoes.
Joshuah says: “Go ahead and cut them into slices, then you’re going to go ahead and cut them into slices again.
“You want them to be like a fourth of an inch, nice and small just like McDonald’s.”
Pop your fries into the sugar water, and leave them in the fridge for half an hour.
In the meantime get a large pan and heat some oil in it, enough to fry your chips.
After your fries are ready to come out the fridge, dry them with a regular towel and pop them in the pan.
Joshuah says: “We’re going to flash fry them for like 60 seconds.”
Have an oven dish or plate or to hand, as after around a minute you want to take them out the oil and put them back in the fridge for another half an hour.
Joshuah continued: “After 30 minutes take them out and you’re going to re-fry them for four to five minutes until they’re golden brown.
“Lightly golden brown, however much you want them.”
Your fries are nearly done at this point, as all that’s left is to season them.
Joshuah takes a big bowl and sprinkles them with salt, just like do in the restaurant.
He adds: “This whole process is just because this is how McDonald’s does it.
“Go ahead and salt some right away, give them a nice toss and you make McDonald's french fries.”
For an authentic look Joshuah even kept some McDonald’s packaging to make his creation look like the real deal.
But if you can’t get your hands on any in the lockdown, you could always make your own chip packet instead.
