First, it was making my own lard. Now, I've gone and bought myself a deep fryer! What's next? I'm pretty sure it's moon pies and Dr. Pepper.
Anyway, the deep fryer arrived this afternoon and I happen to have a lotus root that I had been hoping to make into chips. A few minutes later, after the gallons of oil I had to use got hot, I had super crispy chips, warm and not even a little greasy. The good news is that once the oil cools down, it can be reused a few times. Chips, fries, sopapillas, tempura... oh, my list of things to make is growing and growing. I really don't have a recipe today... just had to share a little deep-fry love with you. Yes, I am that much of a food geek.
