Crunchy Home Made Fries Annabel Langbein
8 medium-large (130-150g each) potatoes
1/4 cup flour
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp flaky salt
ground black pepper

Preheat your oven to 200C/400F fan bake. Line a large, shallow roasting dish with baking paper to allow for easy clean up.

Peel the potatoes and cut them into chunky chips or wedges. Transfer them to the prepared dish, sprinkle them with the flour and toss to evenly combine.

Drizzle the potatoes with oil and toss to coat. Spread out into a single layer in the dish and season with salt and pepper. Roast for about 1 hour until golden and crisp.

Agria seem to be good spud for crispy chips, the best medium for frying is the old bad ass dripping. Got some spuds at the mo but they dont have a name printed on the bag but they are great. Quite similar to agria I reckon

I always do my chips in the deep fryer (well I did, but last time I used the deep fryer the handle on the chip basket broke so I'm now on the hunt for a new deep fryer) and always use oil and either "moonlight" or "rua" spuds.Perfic.

Im interested in the new 'deep' fryer (saw advert on TV)that cooks a kg of chips in a tablespoon of oil - they look like crunchy deep fried chips - yummy!Anyone got one and does it work?

The selection is from the chart that is often printed on the back of 10kg bag of potatoes.
