Step 1: Materials
So you'll need
Maris Piper/King Edward/Desiree will all produce a good chip.
About 200g of spuds per person should yield a good portion. Try and use good sized spuds 70x70mm + (adult size fist should give a single portion)
About 500ml (if cooking 1kg of spuds) of quality vegetable oil.
A sharp wide knife or peeler.
A good quality stainless steel saucepan that will be 1/3 full or less with 500ml of oil (this is a very important safety consideration due to the boiling oil)
A stainless steel colinder
Some sea salt
Step 2: Prepare the spuds
Peel the spuds carefully with a wide knife or a peeler if you dont feel confident with the knife.
Cut the spud in half then slice a small section from the end of each half so you can place the half upright on the chopping board.
Proceed to slice the spud in equal sections then turn the spud on its other side then cut in half lengthways. The idea is to create equal volume chips that will cook consitentley.
Add the chips to cold water as you cut them.
