BIOSHOCK SALTY’S POTATO CHIPS – NERDY NUMMIES

[ocean wave sounds] [theme music] Hey guys, it's Ro Welcome to another Nerdy Nummies! Some of you may notice that I am dressed as Elizabeth from BioShock Infinite

I got a lot requests from you guys to make something from BioShock and I went, "Hmm We have never made something from BioShock" And, we have never made homemade potato chips before

And in BioShock 1 and 2, you can find bags of Salty's Potato Chips all around the game You can find them in vending machines or toilets, so I thought, "That's what we're gonna do" We are gonna be making salt and vinegar Salty's Potato Chips from BioShock Let's get started! The things you'll need will be: Some vegetable oil, malt vinegar, distilled water, a vegetable peeler, 3 Yukon Gold potatoes, some small paper bags―mine are 4×6 inches, 2-inch round cookie cutter, 2 tablespoons of sea salt, some sticker paper, and a mandoline for slicing our potatoes Now, let's put it all together! The first thing that we're gonna do is peel our potatoes But, I left my potatoes in the other room

So, I'm gonna make a portal really quick, just hold on a second! [strained noise] There we go, there we go! Oh! There we go Nice! Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah! Yeah Now, we're gonna peel our potatoes In front of me, I've got a cutting board and a little vegetable peeler We're gonna just get to peelin'

We've got our potatoes peeled, and now I'm gonna cut them in half and place them into a little bit of water so they don't oxidize and change color The next step is totally optional We've got a round cookie cutter and I want my potato chips to be cute, and round, and all matching Place it down on the cutting board, and take my 2-inch cookie cutter and press it down Ooh, yeah

Yeah! Then you're gonna take off the excess We're gonna turn these into hashbrowns later and we just want the middle Our potatoes are ready to become potato chips! I'm so excited, you guys! You can use a sharp cutting knife if you'd like, but if you want very thin, even potato chips, which is what I want, I am using a mandoline I would heavily suggest getting one of these, because you can adjust the blade to either do thick or thin, any size you'd like, and they're relatively inexpensive I'll put a link down below if you're interested in getting one

Take one of these little potatoes and we're just gonna spike the potato in there! I'm also gonna put on some safety gloves This part's totally optional, but they're woven with a little bit of metal and it will protect your fingers from the blade 'Cause I already lost one finger, I don't need to lose any more! I don't have any more thimbles! Now we're ready to slice I would suggest holding the guard in your dominant hand, whatever feels comfortable for you Put it on top

Firm even pressure all the way down There he is! Now we're gonna do this for all of our potatoes Once you've finished slicing your potatoes, I've drained the excess water and they're just in a bowl over here Now we're gonna soak them in the distilled water and the vinegar and we're gonna pour them in here and then pop them in the fridge for 30 minutes After your potato chips have soaked, we are gonna dry them off

Over here, I've got a baking sheet lined with a piece of paper towel to absorb the moisture Pick 'em up, bring 'em over here Once we've got them all under the baking sheet, we're gonna pat them dry and let them dry for about 5 minutes Once they've sat out and dried, we're gonna take our potato chips and our oil over to the stove Pour the oil into a deep, thick-bottomed pot and bring it to 350 degrees

I'm using a candy thermometer to be accurate Then, carefully place the chips in, one by one so that they don't stick together At first, they will sink to the bottom, but then, they will pop back up Allow them to cook for 1 minute on the first side, flip them over, and cook them for an additional 30 seconds to brown Once they've cooked, remove them from the heat

I'm using a spider so that I can scoop them all up at the same time and bring them over to your lined cookie sheet Then, immediately sprinkle with some sea salt so it will stick We've got all of our potato chips over here and while they're cooling for just a little bit, we are gonna make our potato chip bags to look like the ones from the game I made a little template in Photoshop I'll put a link to it down below if you wanna use my template or you can make your own, it's up to you

This part's totally optional But I printed it out onto our sticker paper so it will stick to our bags So now I'm just gonna cut it out I thought this was a really cute idea, if you're gonna have a themed video game party and you wanted to make little Salty's chip bags for everybody I'm just gonna peel off the back and then, line it up and stick it on

Time to fill our Salty's chip bag! This is the last step before I get to eat them, so I'm very excited We're just gonna scoop them in and then they're ready to serve or share with friends or have a few for yourself [humming] Ta-da!! Here are the BioShock Salty's Chips that we've made today! We made a homemade salt and vinegar potato chip recipe A big thank you to you guys for suggesting something from BioShock, because we've never made something from BioShock This is the first time and this is the first time that we have ever made homemade potato chips on the show, so I'm very excited! I'll be taking lots of pictures of these chips and posting the recipe on rosannapansino

com, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, so you can check them out there And if you guys make your own homemade potato chips, please take a picture and send it to me I love seeing your baking creations It just makes me happy! It makes my day! And if you have any other ideas for any other Nerdy Nummies, please let me know, leave me a comment down below and I will do my best to make it happen Alright, thanks again you guys! Bye bye! Elizabeth gets to have one of these

The only thing that would make it better, is if I was in Paris But, oh, it's OK [chips crunching] Mmmmm!! [giggle] [theme music]
