So these are like the evil cousins of my apple peel twigs.
I came across an article in The Kitchn recently, that talked about ways to use kitchen scraps (you know, watermelon rinds, citrus peels, etc.). And there, on the list, was the suggestion to deep fry potato peels.
Deep. Fry. Potato peels.
There wasn’t even a picture, yet I could imagine how delicious they would be.
So the next time I peeled a few potatoes for oven fries I got to work.
And all I can say, is that I am grateful that Conor and Mike were home – or else I might have sat and eaten every one of these by myself.
With St. Patty’s Day approaching I suspect you might find yourself with some extra potato peels – why don’t you give this a try?
