So I offered to crush them, bread chicken with them, bake, and see how it worked. Very well, as it happened.
This is one section of then. Two more lots in the freezer.
Used as the only seasoning, the chips mellowed down to very good. As you see, they were very crackly and couldn't reduce to crumbs. So they're crunchy and very good.
He'll come over when I'm over this cold and have time and energy to make a fruit crumble, with apples from the farm, and we'll address it all together.
This is supposed to be a sick day. I've baked a raft of chicken, rescued herbs from drying up outside, taken out the garbage, brought in the mail, finished a stitching project and cleaned the stovetop.
Aside from that, I've just been loafing about. It's evening now and I'm definitely taking the rest of the day off.
