About Me
I'm a Melbourne boy, hailing from St Kilda with one ex, one current wife and four kids. Love the outdoors and making new discoveries. I cook a lot at home (cheers from wife) and do some preserving, mostly jams, pickles and fruit liqueurs. This is the diary of a cooking journey.

Chipman Beetroot Chips

Wandering around the recent Good Food Show, I was a very happy chappy bumping into the Chipman stand, who have been making quality corn chips for quite some time.

When I first saw these colourful chips from the distance, they looked like a corn chip that an artist had been messing around with. A closer inspection revealed the concentric ring pattern and muted purple of beetroot.

Yep, genuine beetroot. Organic to boot. So I bought a bag to share with you.

They shattered in the mouth with a satisfying crunch and there was no mistaking their beetroot birthright. The frying had certainly intensified the flavour, including the sweetness of the root vegetable.

In these days, with potato crisp manufacturers raiding food technologists' cupboards to come up with new artificial tastes, isn't it great to get a chip with the flavour already built in? A chip that is what it says it is.

And why stop at eating them by the handful as a snack? They'd make a very pretty garnish on the right dish, perhaps a winter stew, or even a dipping chip with some hommous or baba ganoush.

Available from IGA Supermarkets and good food stores.

Or put 'em in a salad sandwich for a healthy chip buttee.

I too still have one packet left from the good food and wine show!
Hiding in my room from the greedy gutzez known as my brothers.

Hi kh, I'd completely forgotten about that, that would be an awesome combo, you could leave off the fresh beetroot and save your shirt at the same time!

Hi honey, you keep that packet well hidden, you know what bloodhounds your brothers are.

beetroot chips, That's something I would like, especially if that's your recommendation, Neil!

I'm upset. Today is National Junk Food Day in the US and you show up with healthy chips.

Damn you!

I'm off to get some fried white potato chips to counteract your negative vibes.

I must try and re-create this when my beetroot crop is ready!

Good heavens, Neil, you've just made my day. One of the best things I ate while in New York was a bag of Terra Kettles "Sweets and Beets", which were just that: sweet potato and beetroot chips. Thick and satisfyingly crunchy, and utterly delicious, without that liverish feeling you get from eating too many. Which was just as well.

Great stuff! I keep learning new things every time I come back to your blog.
