The recipe is very simple, you'll want to wash and peel a potato, you’ll get a decent amount of skin from about four potatoes. 

Anna says: “Rinse them with white vinegar and water and then drain them.”

“Pop them on a baking tray and douse them in lovely olive oil and flaky salt.”

Two tbsp of olive oil and half a tsp of flakey salt should be enough but make sure to spread them evenly.
