Vinegar Air and Salty Crispy Potatoes - British Larder

Vinegar Air and Salty Crispy Potatoes - British Larder created by diner524

Entered for safekeeping, by Madalene Bonvini-Hamel of The British Larder. The recipe's name tickles me. I imagine snacking on these in front of a soccer match with a fine ale. Bring out the mandolin, the deep fryer (or spray them with nonstick spray and bake them in the oven if you must), and a cream whipper (which needs 2 Nitrous Oxide pellets). (If you don't have a cream whipper, you could whip with a hand mixer or stand mixer, it just won't be as chic. But if you were looking for an excuse to get a professional cream whipper, here it is.) (See Recipe #13526 for directions to microwave the potato chips.) This may be made into a Vegetarian dish if agar agar replaced the gelatin. There! You have made gourmet potato chips! Eat with attitude!

ingredients

directions

  • BALSAMIC VINEGAR AIR:

  • Soak the gelatin in cold water per package directions. (Do not let soak too long, follow package directions).
  • In a small saucepan, heat the water and dissolve the gelatin in the hot water.
  • USING CREAM WHIPPER:

  • Add the gelatin water to the balsamic vinegar and pour the solution into a clean cream whipper.
  • Charge the cream whipper with 2 Nitrous Oxide pellets and shake vigorously. Cool the cream whipper in the fridge to soft set the gelatine.
  • USING HAND MIXER OR STAND MIXER:

  • Add the gelatin water to the balsamic vinegar and pour the solution into a clean whipping bowl.
  • Whip to soft peaks, and then put whipping bowl in the refrigerator to soft set the gelatin.
  • BEFORE SERVING:

  • Before serving, shake the cream whipper vigorously and squirt the foam into a small dish to serve with the warm crispy salty potatoes. (Or whip to foamy state in whipping bowl and put in small dish.).
  • SALTY CRISPY POTATOES:

  • Peel the potatoes. Use a Japanese mandolin to slice the potato thinly (wafer thin). Place the sliced potatoes in a deep bucket of water. Wash the potatoes under cold running water to remove as much of the starch as possible.
  • Heat the deep fryer to 160 degrees C (325 F). (Or preheat oven to 175 C or 350 F.).
  • Drain the potatoes and pat them as dry as possible.
  • FRY the slices of potato in small batches and stir them all the time to prevent them from sticking together. Once they are golden brown and crisp, remove them from the fryer with a slotted spoon and drain them on paper towels. Immediately dust them with coarse sea salt.
  • Alternatively, BAKE the potato slices in a single layer on top of parchment-paper covered baking sheet. Spray with nonstick cooking spray. Bake until golden brown, about 10-15 minutes, then remove to paper towel lined plate. Immediately dust them with coarse sea salt.
  • Repeat the process until all the potatoes are cooked. Serve the freshly cooked Salty Crispy Potatoes with a generous amount of Vinegar Air.

    I just love vinegar on my french fries and get them with the vinegar at restaurants and fairs/festivals and couldn't wait to try this recipe. First time making my own homemade potato chips and they were perfect. I had problems with the vinegar air and ended up making it twice. I used "Knox" gelatin powder and in the directions it just said to be combined with 2 cups liquid. The first time I used 1/4 cup water to soak the powder, then added boiling 100 ml water and then the cool 150 ml of vinegar. This never developed soft peaks or even soft set in the refrigerator over night, so threw it out and started over. This time I used 1/4 of cool water to soak the heaping 1/2 tsp of gelatin powder, then adding the remaining water and the 150 ml of vinegar (which were boiling) to the soaked mixture. I whipped for a long time with my KitchenAid mixer on high and, again, no soft peaks. I decided to just refrigerate it over night and check it in the morning. Yeah!!! It worked and was thickened!! I then used my mandolin and mini fryer for the chips and re-whipped the vinegar with great results. The only change I made was to used malt vinegar (personal preference - not so sweet) and used Himalayan sea salt. I wasn't a fan of the cold vinegar/gelatin, would probably let it get to room temp. next time but really loved the combination!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for PRMR Tag Game.
