For the past couple months, I've tried cooking my own crispy chips, yet I've had little no to success with them.
Whenever I put them into hot oil, after a minute in hot oil, they develop brown spots on them and never crisp up. I've tried boiling them, and then frying at a high temp, tried double-frying, low temp at first to pre-cook, then at a high temp to crisp them. Nothing seems to work.
I'm using Maris piper potato's, with sunflower / vegetable oil. I always wash the potato's and dry them before cooking them. I Always waiting 30minutes after pre-cooking them to allow them to cool down before cooking them.
Nothing seems to give me the perfect golden yellow crispy chip that I've always wanted. Any advice on what might be going wrong?
