1
Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4. Prick the potatoes with a fork and place in the oven for 1 hour or until the potato is soft and fluffy on the inside. Carefully scoop out the potato flesh and use for something else, such as mashed potato or Stosie's Lancashire cheese puffs (you can find the recipe for these in the description above)
2
Turn the oven down to 120°C/ gas mark 1/2 and place the potato skins in the oven to dry out for 20 minutes
3
Heat a deep fat fryer or deep pan of oil to 180°C and fry the skins until golden and crunchy
  • oil, for deep frying
4
Drain on absorbent paper and sprinkle liberally with sea salt
5
Alternatively, you can brush the potato skins with oil and season with sea salt before dehydrating in a dehydrator or very low oven for a healthier (but not as delicious) snack!
