Here's a way to make crisps seem a little virtuous. Make your own at home with what we often see as food waste – potato peelings.

Simply wash and scrub the potatoes before you peel them. Then drizzle the peelings with a little oil and toss in your favourite herbs and spices, or sprinkle with sea salt and malt vinegar.
