Other Instructions:

Hob ~ for boiled

enough cold water to cover and add salt if desired. Cover with lid, bring to
boil and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until tender. Drain and serve.

For mash
Follow the instructions for boiled. After draining return pan to warm hob for 1
minute to dry. Add milk, butter and seasoning according to taste. Mash until
creamy smooth and serve.

Deep Fry ~ for chips

Peel potatoes and cut into chips. Place in a bowl of water for 30 minutes to
remove excess starch. Drain and dry thoroughly. Place chips in preheated oil at
190oc (to test temperature put a chip in the oil. If it floats and sizzles the
oil is ready). Deep fry for 5-6 minutes until chips are golden. For best
results use sunflower oil and do not overload pan.

Oven ~ for roasts

Fan 18oc / 200oC / Gas 6

Preheat oven. Pour 2-4 tbsp. sunflower oil into a roasting tin and place in
oven. Peel and cut potatoes into evenly sized pieces and parboil for 10
minutes. Drain thoroughly to remove excess water. The potatoes will turn out
crispier if you let them dry off. Shake in pan to roughen sufraces of potatoes.
Carefully transfer potatoes to hot roasting tin. Turn in the oil and season.
Return tin to top shelf of oven for 55-60 minutes, turning potatoes
occasionally until golden and crispy.

Preparation Guidelines:

Wash before use.

Number Of Uses:



Twice-Cooked Chips ~ Serves 4

The secret of good chips is to cook them more than once. Once on a low heat for
fluffy centres and twice on a high heat for crispy outsides. You will need a
deep pan.

8 large Maris Piper potatoes
Sunflower oil
Flaked or coarse sea salt

Peel potatoes and cut lengthways into roughly 1cm/ 1/2 inch slices and then cut
into thick chips. Soak in a bowl of cold water for at least 30 minutes to
remove excess starch and help ensure even cooking. Heat oil in a depp pan to
130oC. Use a cooking thermometer and check temperature regularly. No
thermometer? Place a raw chip in the oil - if it floats the oil is hot enough.
Alternatively, use an electric deep-fat fryer heated to 130oC.

CAUTION: Hot oil can be dangerous. Do not leave unattended.

Add chips to oil for 8-10 minutes, remove when crisp - not brown. Dry on
kitchen roll and cool in fridge for 30 minutes. When ready to serve, reheat oil
to 180oC and cook for 5 minutes until crisp and golden, drain and sprinkle with
sea salt if desired.
