Grandma Utz's Handcooked Potato Chips
Grandma Utz's Handcooked Potato Chips.
In the winter of 1921, my grandparents, Salie (Sale -ee) and Bill Utz began cooking handmade potato chips in the summer kitchen of our home in Hanover, Pennsylvania. After cooking and packaging the chips by hand, Bill took them to local stores, fairs and farmer's markets in the area. As their business grew, a new and larger hand cooker was installed. By the 1930's, the first automatic cookers went into operation in a building behind our house. Salie and Bill Utz saw the company grow steadily until their passing in the 1960's. Today, family members still run the business and insist upon producing only the finest quality products from the best available ingredients. It is in this tradition, that we bring you Grandma Utz's, made with the same care and pride that Salie and Bill had back in 1921. These chips are made from slightly thicker and unrinsed slices that are hand stirred in individual batches. The finished chips are drained, lightly salted while still warm, cooled and then sealed in protective laminated packaging materials, unlike the plain paper bags that Salie and Bill first used. We hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoy bringing them to you. Thank you, Mike Rice, Chairman. TBHQ and BHT added to help protect flavor. This is a gluten free food.
