    1 tablespoon
  • Vegetable oil

Method

  1. Firstly, prepare your chips. wash and chop the potatoes into chunky chip sized chips and add to large saucepan of cold water.

  2. Bring the chips to the boil and boil for 3 minutes before draining through a colander.

  3. Place the drained chips back in the saucepan and place back on the heat for a minute to dry out the potatoes, keeping the saucepan moving to make sure the chips don’t stick. Drying out the potatoes will mean the chips are crispy and delicious.

  4. Once the chips have dried out, remove the saucepan from the heat and add the flour and mix gently before adding the oil and salt and pouring out onto a baking tray. Make sure you use a baking tray big enough so that the chips are not on top of each other. Otherwise you will have some soggy chips.

  5. If freezing, at this stage leave the potatoes to cool on a baking tray and do not cook them.

  6. If cooking now, place the chips in the oven at 200°C for approx. 30 minutes.

  7. Remove the chips from the oven, If eating now, serve up with the chips and enjoy!

  8. Ready to freeze

    Leave par boiled chips to cool completely, before covering the baking tray and freezing for 2 hours until frozen. Then transfer the chips into a reusable freezer bag.

  9. 3 Ready to eat

    Remove the chips from the freezer.
    The frozen chips will take around 40 minutes to cook at 200°C in the oven
    Once chips are piping hot and golden, serve!
