When I was a kid, we cooked chips in beef fat. They were delicious.

Even better results with my trusty air fryer. The best kitchen aid ever.

I remember my Gran used to have toast & dripping(beef fat). She would cook & burn the toast
& then have it for morning tea!

Why is it we don't get that dripping anymore.?

Toast'n'dripping! I love that. Dripping is the fat from roasting your joint of meat with some of the juices which settle on the bottom when it cools. And you can't buy that Dukey! :icon_biggrin:

I do buy pork dripping from the supermarket and use it to roast potatoes and for making a yorkshire pudding. It's essential for a good pudd!

Now you tell me, so everytime i open the oven door
the temperature drops thus more power to get back
to square one and a bigger electricity bill.
Now young Slaps, while i respect your wisdom and advice
being a senior Prophet and Grand Mufti of the Peers forum
i will follow my path which is oil, heat once thawed chips
in the basket done in half the time and yum. :character-oldtimer:

While talking chips why must cafes plop
moist steak on top of once crisp chips? By the way the dripping sounds wicked but no doubt delicious

Maybe the cafe is trying to hide the fact that their chips were never crisp in the first place Mavis ........ :icon-mrgreen:

There is definitely an art in making crisp chips to go with your fish or steaks.
I am still in the experimental stages but so far have found that I can get a great result with a hot oven (200C), a tray (with holes in it), a sheet of baking paper and Beer battered chips. Get to heat your oven to 200C,get tray and cover with baking paper and lightly spray with Sunflower oil, grab enough chips to have seconds, turn chips in the Sunflower oil and sprinkle with sea salt then bake for 15 mins in middle of oven (2nd rung from bottom). After 15mins turn chips and add a dash more of sea salt and bake for another 10 mins. Turn off heat and open oven door slightly and stand for a couple of minutes inside oven. On to your plate and garnish with heaps of Tom Sauce or BBQ sauce and enjoy with your favourite fish or meat.
Any donations in $100.00 notes direct to my PayPal accounts. Thanks......


BTW, Dripping is mainly from beef and Lard is mainly from pork. I can buy either products in several supermarkets, IGA, some Woolies and some Coles.
You need to search for it in your Deli section.
