Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Peel and slice the potatoes into chip- sized pieces.

Put the cut potatoes into a bowl of iced water (this helps get rid of the starch on the chips and makes them crispier).

Drain the iced water and toss the potatoes in olive oil.

Spread evenly on a greased baking tray and bake for 45 minutes.

Braai or grill the ribs according to instructions and serve hot.

Tip of the day

White pepper
Use white pepper when making pale, creamy sauces or clear stock because it won't discolour the sauce.
