OK so a 150g bag of Kettle Chips costs 1.75 at Tesco's...
I made this 150g portion from a single potato last week.
I sprayed them with Balsamic vinegar and added a little salt and pepper. Delicious!
The tatties were so cheap I honestly can't remember how much...maybe 2.00 for a 2.5kg bag.
So...if Mr Spice drives at an average speed of 50mph from his house to Tescos, how much money would he save by making his own kettle chipsquestionlollol

A. Not a lot, he lives in Germanylol

I sliced the potato with a mandolin.
Washed the slices to destarch them.
Dried them briefly on kitchen roll before shallow frying them in a large frying pan.
I guess a deepfryer would be less hassle but I don't have one.
I kept the frying temperature at 160C and turned them after a couple of minutes.
I put them on kitchen roll to soak some oil off while I cooked a second pan.
Add flavour and devourmrgreen
