Oh yeah! It’s chip week!!
One thing we Brits can do well is a chip. The problem is we have to endure them fried in vegetable oils that have been heated and cooled over and over and over again and that’s just not any good at all. You can read all about that in my previous Heart Health Blog.
Had soggy chips? These are the ones cooked in vegetable oils. Crispy chips are much more likely to have been cooked in animal fats (think Christmas Day roasties cooked in goose fat!)
So, how should you cook a chip or two in honour of this week? Easy — like your Granny used to. In beef dripping or lard.
Chunky cut potatoes, shallow fried in lard, dripping or for the vegetarians – coconut oil. Alternatively you can roast them in the oven in the same way.
Go ahead and enjoy a chip meal this week!
