TIPS

MAKING CHIPS

Be careful when deep frying: Don't leave the pan unattended; If the pan gets too hot, take it off the heat; always have a lid or baking sheet that completely covers the pan incase of fire; don't lean over the pan; lower food carefully into pan, otherwise hot oil may splash onto you.
