ABOUT RUSTY’S CHIPS
Rusty’s chips are truly the only all natural handmade potato chip you will ever have. We slice our fresh bakersfield potatoes by hand one at a time in a small vegetable slicer. Then we slow cook the unprocessed slices in expellor pressed safflower oil. After slow cooking the slices we remove them from this very fine and expensive oil and gently salt our chips with french mediterranean sun dried evaporated sea salt. Each bag is then hand filled and weighed one bag at a time. Then sealed all by hand. We don’t even own a conveyor belt.
What a chip! One bite and you will know what a Rusty chip is all about. Rusty’s chips are very low in fat, with no trans fats, and no saturated fat. They are also low in calories and low in salt; I don’t feel that we have to make our chips salty to have them taste great.
Rusty’s chips are all natural in that we do not process this slice before we cook it. We just slice and cook. Most of the other chip companies blanch and wash the slice before cooking to remove the starch and sugars from the slice before cooking to achieve a uniform white color. We just slice and cook. So our chips are subject to all that mother nature puts in her potatoes, that is why the color always varies. Dark chips in the winter when the sugar content is at it’s peak and golden brown in the summer. The darkies have a nuttier flavor and the goldens have a buttery taste. Rusty’s chips are truly an all natural product.Order Now!
DEAR CHIP ADDICTS:
I want to thank you all for your continued support of America’s smallest chip company. the key to our success is definitely in the hand crafted nature of our chip. Just the economies of scale, we do not own a conveyer belt or a chip salting machine or packaging machine. Every part of our process is by hand. Natural… We fall under Ultra-Natural, because we do not process our chip slices before cooking. We just wash, slice, and cook. All the other chip companies out there wash, slices, washes, and then cooks. That extra wash, as far as I am concerned, takes all the flavor and naturalness out of the chip. It also creates some problems….and those I want to discuss.
During the winter months we are using storage potatoes, and like bananas the older the spuds get the more sugar. The high sugar equals dark color and sometimes a burned looking chips. That is why the extra washes are done by all the other companies. We like the darkies and I think they have a great nutty flavor. Cape Cod calls them their seasonal robust darkies….we just pack them.
I could be like everyone else and process my chip and not have color issues, but I am not going to change. Natural is good! We will always do our best to bring to you the best hand crafted potato chip ever!
