I'm back in the kitchen trying out some gadgets that are geared towards preparing and cooking chips.
As usual I have mixed results - (the Pifco Potato-Twerker is particulary unusual) but I still manage to end up with a really good plate of chips. Despite the loss of most of my sense of taste (anosmia), I can still appreciate a good chip. They should be hot and crispy on the outside, dry, not greasy and soft in the middle and fortunately I can still taste the salt that I probably shouldn't put on them.
Being a Type 1 Diabetic for the last couple of years has meant that I had to switch away from a low carb diet to a high carb one. Each meal needs to have some form of 'stodge', bread, rice, pasta or potatoes, something that will be be digested slowly over time. I bought the Actifry to make healthier chips as Type 1 diabetics are a lot more prone to getting clogged-up arteries than a healthy person. I can now have chips a couple of times a week with a meal without worrying about the fat content.
