Potato chips can be found in any household and are seen at any BBQ or football game viewing. They are a delicious snack simply made from thin slices of potato that are deep fried or baked until crunchy. Basic chips are cooked then salted, but it seems like the flavors among potato chips are endless these days.
According to a traditional story, the very first batch of potato chips was created in Saratoga Springs, New York. It has been said that this happened all the way back to 1853 by Chef George Crum. Crum was trying to please an unsatisfied customer. He sliced their potatoes very thin, fried them until crisp and seasoned them with salt. What a success! The customer loved them. They soon became known as “Saratoga Chips.” And the rest was history! It’s safe to say that potato chips are familiar to most people and enjoyed by even more.
