Ever wanted to make your very own crisps? (That's chips to you Americans. ;) ) Well, now you can. And the best part? It only consists of three ingredients!


  • Several medium sized potatoes
  • Vegetable oil
  • Salt
Slice your potatoes as thin as you possibly can. (Usually, you'll find the perfect tool to use on the sides of a basic kitchen cheese grater to slice them thin enough: [Example] )

Once these have been sliced, simply soak then in cold water to remove the starch and rinse well. Drain them and place the slices onto a piece of kitchen towel, or on a tea towel to remove the water. Now they are ready to fry!

In a pan heat your oil. This has to be quite hot for them to be deep fried. Place the crisps in the hot oil and fry until hard. If they brown quickly, reduce the heat.

Alternatively, you can bake them too! Simply place on a baking tray and drizzle oil (Or spritz, if you are lucky enough to have spray on oil!) over the top and bake until golden.

Then add whatever flavour you want to them! You can even adapt the recipe and make sweet potato crisps instead.
