  • I use sebago potatoes for these chips because they grow really big!
  • Boiling the chips for a few minutes gives them that fluffy interior that make chips delicious.
  • You can shallow fry these if you don't have a deep fryer. Just make sure to turn them to make them golden all over.
  • These are great served with Beer batter fish, Maldon sea salt flakes and some nice malty vinegar.
