She was right.
I did say "Oh my giddy aunt" when I saw what was on her phone.
See if you don't have a similar reaction, here's what I saw.
Can you see it? Yep, pita chips just $71.58 a kilo - a real bargain NOT!
I did the sums. A packet of Lebanese bread costs $1.35 for 400g or $3.40 per kilo. Sometimes it comes on sale for 99 cents, and even better, 89 cents a packet and I buy up big - 10 or more packets (it freezes!). That would bring the per kilo price down and make these gourmet (who'd a thunk the humble pita chip would be a gourmet treat?) treats even cheaper.
Add some olive oil, a sprinkle of salt, a couple of cloves of garlic and about two teaspoons rosemary and for a cost of approximately 90 cents (the cost will depend on how much you pay for your oil and herbs - I grow garlic and rosemary so they're virtually free) and you can have 1 kilo of seasoned pita chips for under $4.50. If you'd rather have them plain they'll be even cheaper.
That's a whopping $67 difference.
I bet that you, like me, believe that $67 is much better in your bank account than the supermarkets (if you don't then maybe this isn't the place for you after all).
Pita chips take around 10 minutes to make and they're so easy even a child can make them.
Here's how I make our pita chips.
