    Homemade every time

    Maris Piper's or King Edwards are the best variety for making chips.

    What I do is peel and chop the potatoes into chip sized pieces and then soak them in a pan of water for about 3-4 minutes while the chip-pan warms up the sunflower oil thats in there.

    To test that the oil is at the right temperature, I drop a small off-cut of potato into the oil and when it's about to float, take it out and then load the chip pan with chips

    Cook until golden brown and then I leave them to stand and drain for 2 minutes before been dunked back in for another 2 mins. This helps give them a nice crunch feeling.

    Drizzle with Malt vinegar and salt and voila - chips...

    hmmmmm I'm drooling thinking about them now.

    As above, but they really need leaving a good 15-20 minutes before being popped back in to finish off.

    Re: The best chips ever debate

    homemade chips - BUT it depends on who cooks them,
    my dad makes them too crispy where all the potato melts inside, so all thats left is a crunchy hollow casing.

    my mum - it depends whats on TV at the time because occasionally forgets she put them on to cook. - hence our saying "if the fire alarms going off, it just means teas ready."

    my sister - gets impatient that they take too long, takes them out when they still have hard potato in them.

    me - never tried cooking them.

    out of that lot, my mum's are the best, and then i put a bit of salt and either tomato or brown sauce and if we've got them, a cheese slice.

    what's the advantage of a potatato over the humble potato...? longer chips?

    Belgian chips from a chip stand served in a plastic punnet with a big glob of mayonnaise > everything else. I am totally gutted that the stand in Adinkerke closed down, I went in there without fail every time I crossed the border for cheap tobacco.

    French frites are similar and run them a close second, especially when served with a perfectly cooked steak- or a merguez sausage from a man with a gazebo by the side of the road. Happy days.

    I do like a good chip shop chip, but they're more of a satisfying meal than a gourmet delight. I've tried making my own belgian-style chips with my deep fat fryer, with very disappointing results.
