Title: A Labor of Love
Post by: pete b on August 03, 2016, 12:40:43 AM
Digging potatoes, washing, slicing on a mandolin, soaking in cold water, drying, frying in batches, draining grease, frying in batches again, draining, and salting is not the easiest way to snack on potato chips, but its the best!

Looks awesome, Pete!  I make homemade potato chips, but I definitely don't grow my own potatoes.

Nothing like a chip that was underground attached to a root half an hour ago.

Those are screaming for a dusting of Old Bay, then to be served along side a softshell crab sandwich...maybe with a nice pils...out on the patio...

Here that would be sea salt and a lobster roll. I'll stick with the pils.

   The closest thing to seafood around these parts is Rocky Mtn. Oysters, which with your chips and some beers would make a spanking good breakfast.

FWIW, the wife and I went to the local brewpub for dinner...I opted to pass on the soft-shell crab in favor of the seafood boil. Which was excellent, my dad's family is from Massachusetts, tasted just like my grandmother's seafood boil.
