We washed the potatoes that came out of our garden. We scrubbed them until they were clean.
We cut the potatoes as thin as we could. The potatoes were purple inside because they are Maori potato and the name translates to 'dog pooh'. The potatoes are a lumpy oval shape. When we cut them we had lots of circle and oval chip shapes. Then we dried the potatoes off between two kitchen towels.
We painted the potatoes with melted butter so they would brown. We only used a little bit of butter so they wouldn't burn. The butter also added flavour and made them taste delicious.
When the oven was hot we put the chips into the oven in a single layer so they would crisp up.
When the potatoes were cooked we added a little salt. We could smell them cook and were eager to eat them. When they were cool we munched them all up with delight.
