Potato chips

Potato chips

A potato chip (American English) or crisp (British English) is a thin slice of potato that has been deep-fried, baked, kettle-cooked, or popped until crunchy. Potato chips are commonly served as a snack, side dish, or appetizer. The basic chips are cooked and salted; additional varieties are manufactured using various flavorings and ingredients including herbs, spices, cheeses, and artificial additives.

“Crisps”, however, may also refer to many different types of savory snack products sold in the United Kingdom and Ireland, some made from potato, but some made from corn, tapioca, or other cereals, just as other varieties of chips are consumed in the United States.

Potato chips are a predominant part of the snack food market in Western countries. The global potato chip market generated total revenues of US$16.49 billion in 2005. This accounted for 35.5% of the total savory snacks market in that year ($46.1 billion).

 
The earliest known recipe for potato chips is in William Kitchiner’s 1822 cookbook The Cook’s Oracle, a bestseller in England and the United States; its recipe for “Potatoes fried in Slices or Shavings” reads “peel large potatoes, slice them about a quarter of an inch thick, or cut them in shavings round and round, as you would peel a lemon; dry them well in a clean cloth, and fry them in lard or dripping”.

Early recipes for potato chips in the United States are found in Mary Randolph’s Virginia House-Wife (1824), and in N.K.M. Lee’s Cook’s Own Book (1832), both of which explicitly cite Kitchiner.

Nonetheless, a legend associates the creation of potato chips with Saratoga Springs, New York, decades later. By the late 19th century, a popular version of the story attributed the dish to George Crum, a half African, half Native American cook at Moon’s Lake House, who was trying to appease an unhappy customer on August 24, 1853. The customer kept sending his French-fried potatoes back, complaining that they were too thick. Frustrated, he sliced the potatoes razor-thin, fried them until crisp and seasoned them with extra salt. To Crum’s surprise, the customer loved them. They soon became called “Saratoga Chips”, a name that persisted into at least the mid-20th century. A version of this story popularized in a 1973 national advertising campaign by St. Regis Paper Company, which manufactured packaging for chips, said that Crum’s customer was Cornelius Vanderbilt. Crum was renowned as a chef and by 1860 owned his own lakeside restaurant, Crum’s House.

In the 20th century, potato chips spread beyond chef-cooked restaurant fare and began to be mass-produced for home consumption. The Dayton, Ohio-based Mike-sell’s Potato Chip Company, founded in 1910, identifies as the “oldest potato chip company in the United States”. New England-based Tri-Sum Potato Chips, originally founded in 1908 as the Leominster Potato Chip Company, in Leominster, Massachusetts claim to be America’s first potato chip manufacturer. Chips sold in markets were usually sold in tins or scooped out of storefront glass bins and delivered by horse and wagon. The early potato chip bag was wax paper with the ends ironed or stapled together. At first, potato chips were packaged in barrels or tins, which left chips at the bottom stale and crumbled.

Laura Scudder, an entrepreneur in Monterey Park, California, started having her workers take home sheets of wax paper to iron into the form of bags, which were filled with chips at her factory the next day. This pioneering method reduced crumbling and kept the chips fresh and crisp longer. This innovation, along with the invention of cellophane, allowed potato chips to become a mass-market product. Today, chips are packaged in plastic bags, with nitrogen gas blown in prior to sealing to lengthen shelf life, and provide protection against crushing.

Traditional chips were made by the “batch-style” process, where all chips are fried all at once at a low temperature

and continuously raked to prevent them from sticking together. Industrial advance resulted in a shift to production by a “continuous-style” process, running chips through a vat of hot oil and drying them in a conveyor process. Consumer desire for original style chips resulted in the introduction of traditionally made “kettle-style” chips in the 2000s (known as hand-cooked in the UK/Europe).

In an idea originated by the Smiths Potato Crisps Company Ltd, formed in 1920, Frank Smith packaged a twist of salt with his chips in greaseproof paper bags, which were sold around London.

The potato chip remained otherwise unseasoned until an innovation by Joe “Spud” Murphy, the owner of an Irish chip company called Tayto, who in the 1950s developed a technology to add seasoning during manufacture. After some trial and error, Murphy and his employee, Seamus Burke, produced the world’s first seasoned chips: Cheese & Onion, Barbecue, and Salt & Vinegar. This innovation was notable in the food industry. Companies worldwide sought to buy the rights to Tayto’s technique.

The first flavored chips in the United States, barbecue flavor, were being manufactured and sold by 1954. In 1958, Herr’s was the first company to introduce barbecue-flavored potato chips in Pennsylvania.

In the United States, popular potato chip flavorings include sour cream and onion, dill pickle, barbecue, ranch dressing, salt and vinegar, cheddar, and lemon-lime. In the Gulf South, Zapp’s Potato Chips of Gramercy, Louisiana, manufactures kettle-fried chips with regional flavors such as Crawtator, Cajun dill, Voodoo, and Creole onion.

 

 

Pringles potato chips are uniform in size and shape, which allows them to be stacked.

Pringles potato chips are uniform in size and shape, which allows them to be stacked.

Another type of potato chip, notably the Pringles and Lay’s Stax brands, is made by extruding or pressing a dough made from ground potatoes into the desired shape before frying. This makes chips that are uniform in size and shape, which allows them to be stacked and packaged in rigid tubes. In America, the official[citation needed] term for Pringles is potato crisps, but they are rarely referred to as such. Conversely, Pringles may be termed potato chips in Britain, to distinguish them from traditional “crisps”. Munchos, another brand that uses the term potato crisps, has deep air pockets in its chips that give it a curved shape, though the chips themselves resemble regular bagged chips.

An additional variant of potato chips exists in the form of “potato sticks”, also called shoestring potatoes. These are made as extremely thin (2 to 3 mm) versions of the popular French fry, but are fried in the manner of regular salted potato chips. A hickory-smoke-flavored version is popular in Canada, going by the vending machine name “Hickory Sticks”. Potato sticks are typically packaged in rigid containers, although some manufacturers use flexible pouches, similar to potato chip bags. Potato sticks were originally[when?] packed in hermetically sealed steel cans. In the 1960s, manufacturers switched to the less expensive composite canister (similar to the Pringles container). Reckitt Benckiser was a market leader in this category under the Durkee Potato Stix and French’s Potato Sticks names, but exited the business in 2008. In 2014, French’s reentered the market.

A larger variant (about 1 cm thick) made with dehydrated potatoes is marketed as Andy Capp’s Pub Fries, using the theme of a long-running British comic strip, which are baked and sold in a variety of flavors. Walkers make a similar product (using the Smiths brand) called “Chipsticks” which are sold in ready-salted and salt and vinegar flavors.

Americans’ appetite for crispy snacks gave birth to the packaged, flavored corn chips, with such brands as Fritos,

Flavored corn chips such as Fritos are an outgrowth of traditional fried tortilla chips.

Flavored corn chips such as Fritos are an outgrowth of traditional fried tortilla chips.

CC’s, and Doritos dominating the market.[citation needed] “Swamp chips” are similarly made from a variety of root vegetables, such as parsnips, rutabagas, and carrots. Japanese-style variants include extruded chips, like products made from rice or cassava. In South Indian snack cuisine, an item called happla in Kannada/vadam in Tamil, is a chip made of an extruded rice-sago or multigrain base that has been around for many centuries.

Many other products might be called “crisps” in Britain, but would not be classed as “potato chips” because they are not made with potato or are not chipped (for example, Wotsits, Quavers, Skips, Hula Hoops, and Monster Munch).

Kumara (sweet potato) chips are eaten in Korea, New Zealand, and Japan; parsnip, beetroot, and carrot crisps are available in the United Kingdom. India is famous for a large number of localized ‘chips shops’, selling not only potato chips, but also other varieties such as plantain chips, tapioca chips, yam chips, and even carrot chips. Plantain chips, also known as chifles or tostones, are also sold in the Western Hemisphere from Canada to Chile. In the Philippines, banana chips can be found sold at local stores. In Kenya, chips are made from arrowroot and casava. In the United Kingdom, Sweden, Finland, and Australia, a new variety of Pringles made from rice has been released and marketed as lower in fat than its potato counterparts.

Today’s Menu: Izzy’s Lean Corned Beef Sandwich w/ Pringle Fat-Free Chips

 

 

izzys-lean-003 (1)
A little warmer out today and a bit of humidity. They say it’s going to cool back down next week. Started off with one great Breakfast; 1 Egg Sunnyside Up, 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, Jalapeno Cheddar Diced Potatoes (Leftover from dinner last night), Whole Grain Toast, and a hot cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea! That’s a good way to start the day. Later in the day we went toa Birthday Party for my Aunt. She lives at an area Assisted Living Center and they had the party there. Really didn’t feel like cooking tonight so I shut that Kitchen down! Tonight its Izzy’s Lean Corned Beef Sandwich w/ Pringle Fat-Free Chips.

 

 
As always when I have Corned Beef it’s from Izzy’s, Izzy’s Lean Corned Beef Sandwich. Plus with their “Lean” version of the Corned Beef it makes it healthier than most also. The sandwich contains 170 calories and 16 carbs per serving (1/2 Sandwich) and 340 calories and 32 carbs for a Full Sandwich. I had the Full Sandwich along with a serving of Pringle Fat-Free Chips and they’re 70 calories and 14 net carbs per serving. Then to go along with it all I had an Ice-Cold Diet Dr. Pepper, 0 calories and 0 carbs. Love sticking a small bottle of Dr. Pepper in the freezer for a bit, just enough to get a layer of ice forming on it! For dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream topped with some fresh sliced Peaches.

Today’s Menu: Jennie – O Bun Length Uncured Turkey Franks w/ Pringles Fat free Chips and Trop-A-Rocka Diet Snapple

 

 

J O Bun Length Turkey Franks 004

If you read my earlier post you know how I started my day. Pancakes, Jennie O Turkey Bacon, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea! Man those Pancakes were good! Not much going on today, did some laundry and that was about it. Caught up on some sleep, had a case of the Phantom Pains last night that kept me up. Those always make for a long night. For dinner tonight it’s Jennie – O Bun Length Uncured Turkey Franks w/ Pringle’s Fat Free Chips and Trop-A-Rocka Diet Snapple.

 

 

 

I used Jennie – O Bun Length Uncured Turkey Franks. My last package of my free samples of Jennie – O Turkey Franks. I love grilling but I’m a huge fan of boiling Franks and Dogs also. So I boiled these for dinner. These are some beautiful looking plump Turkey Franks, when boiled. Fantastic taste and as they say, they’re Bun Length. I topped it with some French’s Yellow Mustard and served them on a Healthy Life Whole Grain Hot Dog Bun. Thank you Jennie – O! For a side I had some Pringle’s Reduced Fat Chips and an ice-cold bottle of Trop-A-Rocka Diet Snapple! For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Double Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

I’d like to start by wishing my Mom and Dad a Happy 66th Wedding Anniversary! Wow, 66 years! It’s been another one of those humid and muggy days out again, with rain on and off. Puttered around the house doing some odd and end jobs and that’s about it for today. I wanted something light for Dinner tonight so The Kitchen is Closed! – and It’s Izzy’s Tonight!

 

 

 

 

Had the best Corned Beef Sandwich that I know of, the Izzy’s Lean Corned Beef Sandwich. Plus with their “Lean” version of the Corned Beef it makes it healthier than most also.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Brats, Chips, and Deviled Eggs

 

 

Grilled Brats Deviled Eggs 001
Third day in a row of beautiful weather! Sunny and the 70’s again. Went to the store for Mom and back home for the day. Stopped by a neighbors for a while and got the cart out for the afternoon. For Breakfast I had Wheat Toast and Turkey Sausage, then for Lunch Tyson Smokey BBQ Chicken Wings, for Dinner I had no clue! One of those days where nothing sounded good. I settled on, Grilled Brats, Chips, and Deviled Eggs.

 

 

 

 

Mom and Dad wanted grilled Hot Dogs and Brats so I thought sounded good as anything. So I fired up the grill and put some Hot Dogs and Brats on. I used Ball Park Hot Dogs, Mom’s favorite, and Blue Grass Lean Bratwurst which are 100 calories and 4 carbs per Brat. Delicious and they cook up great! Served them all on Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Hot Dog Buns and topped with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard. Grilled a couple extra Brats for lunch tomorrow.

 

 

 
Then Mom had made some Baked Beans and Deviled Eggs. I passed on the Baked Beans, too many calories in the way she made them, but had the Deviled Eggs and Mom makes the best! Nothing had sounded good, but it all came together for a great dinner! For dessert later a Healthy Choice Vanilla Bean Frozen Yogurt.

Another night of heavy rain but it was a beautiful day. Got a few things done around the house and then I hopped in the car and got out and enjoyed the day! Stopped by a friend’s house for a bit and then drove to a local park. Very relaxing day. For dinner, that was a tough choice. It was one of those days where nothing sounded good. So when in doubt why not Izzy’s! Dinner tonight, Izzy’s Lean Corned Beef Sandwich w/ Pringle Fat-Free Chips.

Steamed Hot Dogs and Buns w/ Fat Free Pringle’s

Today’s Menu: Steamed Hot Dogs and Buns w/ Fat Free Pringle’s

 

 

 
It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood! Sunny and a high of around 51 degrees. With the last few days of sun and warmer temps we can actually see most of the lawns instead of piles of snow. I had been wanting to try the Jennie – O Turkey Franks but could not find them sold anywhere until I was on-line and seen that Target sells them. I had never shopped at Target before and after this morning I may not again! I had read some not so kind reviews of Target as from people who are handicapped, but they are the only ones in this area that sells the Jennie – O Turkey Franks so I thought I would give them a try.

 

 

 

They opened at 8:00, so I have learned through the years if you have to rely on a stores electric carts you go early so you can use one that’s fully charged. I was the third person in as the doors opened and very disappointed right off seeing they only had 3 electric carts for the entire store, that was in sight at least. Then I noticed all 3 carts were unplugged which meant that they had set there all night without being recharged. I checked all 3 carts and all were near dead but I tried one anyway. I got about halfway to the grocery dept. and the cart died. After several minutes I got a clerk’s attention and he got me a second cart. They were still stocking and some of the aisles were blocked with boxes and pallets but I was finally able to grab a couple of packages of the Jenn O Turkey Franks. I wanted to look around but the cart was fading fast so I headed to check out line. Didn’t make it though as the 2nd cart passed away, they brought me a third cart! I was able to make it through the line and to my car before that one had the same fate as the other 2. If I go back to Target it will be for the Franks and nothing else! Needless to say if you have to rely on electric carts you might want to avoid Target and Whole Foods who don’t even supply electric carts, at least the Whole Foods here in West Chester. Sorry for the rant, on with the menu! I prepared Steamed Hot Dogs and Buns w/ Fat Free Pringle’s.

 

 

Steamed Turkey Franks 002
I’m finally getting a chance to try the Jennie – O Turkey Franks, and I’m glad I did! Nice size Turkey Franks, and steamed up plump and a whole lot of flavor! Got to give these a high rating on the Dog Scale for sure. I usually boil or grill Franks or Hot Dogs but last week I had purchased a steamer and had chance to give it a try today. It worked to perfection, good purchase. As I said the Franks came out nice and plump with lots of flavor, these will make some fantastic Chili Dogs. Served them on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Hot Dog Bun and topped them with French’s Yellow Mustard. Served with a side of Pringle’s Fat Free Potato Chips. For dessert/snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn.

Today’s Menu: Izzy’s Lean Corned Beef Sandwich w/ Pringle Fat-Free Chips

 

 

 

izzys-lean-003
Another Sunny day but a lot cooler, a high in the mid 30’s. Spent some of the day visiting my Aunt who is in a assisted living center. She has good days and bad while dealing with Dementia. From there ran a few errands and home. For dinner, that was a tough choice. It was one of those days where nothing sounded good. Thought about a Buffalo Sirloin, Brats, Chicken and nothing seemed to hit the spot. So when in doubt why not Izzy’s! Dinner tonight, Izzy’s Lean Corned Beef Sandwich w/ Pringle Fat-Free Chips.

 

 

 
No one is a close second to Izzy’s, I would put Izzy’s Corned Beef up against any other. Plus with their “Lean” version of the Corned Beef it makes it healthier also. The sandwich contains 170 calories and 16 carbs per serving (1/2 Sandwich) and 340 calories and 32 carbs for a Full Sandwich. I had the Full Sandwich along with a serving of Pringle Fat-Free Chips and their 70 calories and 14 net carbs per serving. Then to go along with it all I had an Ice-Cold Diet Dr. Pepper, 0 calories and 0 carbs. For dessert/snack later tonight a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn.
