DRY THE CHIPS!!! Shit and thanks Giok, will do that next time.


Took Jeri's suggestion and went to an Oriental variety store and bought a "Chip basket.

Put the lard in my small wok. Put the basket in. filled it with some "overnight soaked" russet potatoes. Next time I'll dry them.

Watched in awe (and shook the basket now and then like they do in Greasy spoons)

Emptied 'em out when they seemed done.

Ate em. Very good.

Figured I'd put the lard in a rubbermaid container in the fridge for next time.

Poured it into the container.....AND IT WAS TOO HOT!! The friggin' container MELTED! Hot lard all over the stove and in the burners and on the floor! Bugger!

I shall return.....much chastised!
