For chips it is important to choose a potato variety that holds its shape well and yet cooks to a light fluffiness inside (above). Chips can be made either using a sharp cook’s knife for straight chips or in a food processor for game chips. After cutting into sticks, it is important to soak for about 30 minutes in water to remove excess starch. This prevents the chips from sticking together.
