Deep fried potatoes may not be the healthiest food. My attitude is, that if I’m going to eat something greasy it better taste really good. I’m not going to waste my “junk food quota” on Oreos.
Heston Blumenthal puts his stamp of approval on these chips, and I hate to admit it: All that extra work is worth it. First you boil them, then you deep fry them lightly, and then you deep fry them until brown. I tested some yesterday after the first fry, and the thrice cooked ones are definitely better.
