Home cooked crisps
A simple tasty treat that is much better for you than anything you could buy in the shop!
Fill a big bowl with these and sprinkle whatever topping your fancy - classic sea salt, or get creative with cayenne pepper, onion powder or even finely grated Parmasan.
Once completely cool, these will last for a few days in an airproof container.
- 2/3 large potatoes (how to grow potatoes)
- Olive oil
- Sea salt
Pre-heat the oven to 200C/400F (Gas Mark 6).
Clean potatoes and dry thoroughly.
Use a potato peeler to cut very fine discs of potato.
Put a layer of greaseproof paper onto a baking sheet and pop the potato discs on top, taking care not to overlap them.
Bake for 15-30 mins, keeping a careful eye on them. You want them to crisp up, but not to burn.
Take out of the oven and leave to cool for a few minutes before adding your flavour combinations (we love a sprinkling of sea salt!)
Eat now, or store in an airproof container for a few days.
