There are all sorts of varieties of Potatoes and the ones used for Crisps are intentionally very low in natural sugars. It’s the sugars which make Potatoes brown when to roast or fry them. Brown Crisps might not have the same aesthetic appeal I guess. So we roasted some on Sunday are they worked really well.
