Leo doesn't eat much junk food (yet) but I thought I'd treat him to some home made crisps...made from seaweed.
I hung a few fronds of kelp on the line to dry for a day (and they did dry, despite the rain), then deep fried them, as per the instructions in John Wright's book:
I have sampled numerous crisps in my time, and I can safely say that Kelp crisps are the longest I have ever tasted.
They are also the worst.
Leo actually asked if he could try some (yes, a 2 year old asked to eat an unknown food that wasn't made of chocolate or fish fingers). I said no and threw the rest in the bin. That's how bad it is.
I might be dead tomorrow... Never mind Leo - there are plenty of beans in the cupboard above the microwave.
