Markies potatoes make the best chips
- Wash the potatoes well in cold water
- Cut out any blemishes or bad marks
- Using a speed peeler and peel the potatoes
- Using a potato chipper if you have one, cut into chips
- Wash the starch off the chips by placing in a colander under cold running water.
- If you have time, they benefit from being soaked in well salted water before you cook them.
- Certainly pop them in a bowl of salted water until you are ready to fry them - just like the chip-shop does.
- Just before you r going to cook them, give the chipped potatoes a final rinse and dry them in a tea-towel.
- A salad spinner is a brilliant way to dry them thoroughly, though you may have to do this in a few batches - depending how greedy you both are!
- Add no more than 2 tablespoons of olive oil to your air fryer and tip potatoes in.
- Around 35 to 37 minutes seems to cook them perfectly, though check them a little before this as some potatoes cook faster than others.
if you are using a non-paddle air fryer such as the Pro Breeze Air Fryer, add the potatoes to a Lock and Lock box with a few tables spoons of olive oil and shake them furiously to coa the chips evenly in oil.
