Have you ever heard the saying, ‘the best inventions come to us when we’re hungry’? I could be paraphrasing or maybe I just made it up, I don’t know. lol
So I woke up, and my siblings had just gone to school, and I was starving badly that morning, I mean, real starving, I felt like I hadn’t eaten in a decade.
So there were potato skins on the kitchen counter. My siblings have the tendency of not throwing things out when they’re done using them. I thought… maybe I could munch on those, I mean, I love potato wedges with the skins on so why not. That is how I came up with this super quick, easy and yummy recipe!
This is a care free recipe with no real quantity requirements, just make do with what you’ve got!
Vegetable oil for deep frying
Thoroughly wash your potatoes prior to peeling, if not, thoroughly wash the potato skins
Soak potato skins in vinegar water to the ratio 2 liters of water to 1 tbsp vinegar for about 5-10 minutes. This helps the crisp up nicely.
Drain the skins of the water and deep fry until crispy but not too brown (they burn easily)
I enjoy mine with mustard and spice for chips.
Cool thing that I learnt a few years ago, if you do not have spice for chips, BBQ spice is a great substitute.
