Points to remember:
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. Roasted in a hot oven (200C/180 fan/gas 6) for 25-30 mins and these scraps will become your snacking saviour.
