Okay, so chips - it's hardly rocket science is it? Yet it still amazes me how many people reach for the bag of Mccains - I'm not being snobby about it, I used to love a portion of crinkle cut home fries but once you've made your own oven chips it's quite hard to believe you settled for the frozen variety. Homemade just taste so much nice, much fluffier and far far tastier.
My chips are made in the usual straightforward way - scrub the potatoes (leaving the skin on), cut them into chunky chips or wedges, rinse them - dry them well, lay them on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and a bit of salt and roast them in the oven at around 200degrees for about 45mins and voila! Delicious homemade chips.
I now own a deep fat fryer and recently tried making stringy fries in it, but as yet have not tried chunky chips. I fear it will be a slippery slope if I start making chips in the fryer so am resisting as much as I can.
