    Hi sorry if I am posting in the wrong place. But does anybody know if you can still make syn free chips using tinned potatoes? Sometimes when I'm I a rush it would make life easier to not have to peel the potatoes (seems to take me forever). I sound lazy now! Any help would be fab! :)

    Just leave the skin on the normal potatoes! Makes them "rustic" chips and they're still lovely!

    I would hazard a guess that it would be pretty messy and they'd make rotten chips (would probably fall apart)

    I agree. I never peel my potatoes before making chips. Much nicer with the skins left on :drool:

    Theyre still free on EE/Green but theyre not a HEX on Red as theres no skin on them, same as normal peeled potatoes.

    Im another one who never takes the skin off. In fact I never take the skin off ANYTHING :D a) Im too lazy b) its better for you with the fibre/nutrients in the skin :)

    I dont think tinned ones would work as chips either, they'd fall apart I reckon. Theyd also take forever to crisp up wouldn't they?
