Homemade crisps experiment.
Slice finely, 1 potato per person.
Wash of the starch and leave to dry.
Mix slices in a little oil, salt spices.
Overdid it a bit 8min at 750w microwave, but not bad!
Interesting experiment. Did you get them, erm, crispy?
They certainly look the part.
@fitheach yes, strangely they became crispier after I let them sit for moment, I think I'll try the next batch with a lower setting, 500w for longer.
Any reason for using a microwave rather than, say, an oven or grill?
@fitheach TBH I do not know, Since microwaves presumably heat the water in the food directly this might be an advantage in getting them crispy.
Just Learning by doing, I guess I'll try a batch in the oven some time.
I thought maybe you did it as there is less cleaning to do afterwards. 👨🍳
@fitheach Cleaning ovens is overated, after all, it can only take away from the flavour ;)
We have an Aga, the oven is self cleaning. 😃
@fitheach amazing story of how the Aga came to be. Really inspiring.
The fact that the Aga inventor lost his sight?
@fitheach well, that he invented it _after_ losing his sight, forced to stay at home.
How old is your Aga?
@fitheach planned longetivity.
It was converted to use kerosene in the 1970s, other than that it hasn't changed since 1947. As far as I am aware there have been no replacement parts required since the day it was made.
@fitheach pretty amazing! No wonder the Telford foundry went out of business.
In complete contrast to our wood burning stove which is *always* needing something. Oh yeah, I'm glad to be keeping one foundry in business.
