Step 1: Peel Potatoes
I assume most people know how to peel a potato.
But it is not necessary to peel them you can leave the skin on. If you like that sort of thing.

Step 2: Cutting Time
Cut the potatoes into strips. Depending on the size you want them.
Step 3: Blanching Time
Get your larger pot fill it up to a quarter way with water, bring it to the boil.
Once boiling add 1x tablespoon of lemon juice and 1 and a half tablespoons of white wine vinegar.
Add a pinch of salt or two.
Step 4: Boil It Up
Add your cut potatoes to the boiling water, let boil for 10 to 15 minutes.
After that remove and let cool to a luke warm temperature.
Remove potatoes and rinse under cold water. (This removes excess starch)
Step 5: Frying
After rinsing the potatoes, strain the water and shake as much water off as possible.
Ready your oil for frying. Heat your oil until max. To test this drop a small piece of potato into the oil, if it fries rapidly the oil is ready.
Please make sure to add potatoes slowly to avoid spatter from the oil. ( be cautious when working with hot oil) fry until golden brown or to taste.
Step 6: Enjoy
Place the fried chips into a bowl lined with kitchen towels. Add seasoning to taste. For something exotic, have a look at my orange and lemon zest salt.
Thanks for reading my instructable.
