The Science Behind Salt and Vinegar Chips

You know standard potato chips are made by slicing and cooking potatoes (Pringles excepted). When do you add the vinegar to make salt and vinegar chips? You can't just put it in the frying oil! The answer is a recipe for dry vinegar powder, which was used as far back as the year 1615 -although not on potato chips. Read the story (and the recipe) at Serious Eats. Link -via the Presurfer

I'm addicted to J&D's Malt Salt!
(Their main product is Bacon Salt, though)
Here's a tip for some scintillatin' snackin': Get some microwave popcorn of the "Natural" (i.e. unbuttered) variety, open the bag after popping, sprinkle in some Malt/Bacon Salt, close the bag and Shake!Shake!Shake!

That's good eatin'!!
