What is the famous rasp potato in the Netherlands?

Raspatat is sold as standard in snack bars in some parts of the Netherlands. But they have never heard of raspatat in other parts of the Netherlands. Aviko has been developing a raspberry for the home since 2015. This can be found in the freezer section of the supermarket. But what exactly is raspatat?

Raspatat is slightly darker and slightly thinner than regular french fries. They also have a different flavor. It is prepared in the fryer just like regular fries. Usually much shorter than normal chips. Rasp potatoes only need 1.5 minutes in the deep fryer at 175 degrees.

How to make rasp fries?
Raspatat is made by mixing potato powder with water. It’s actually a kind of mashed potato. This puree is then pressed with a special machine, which creates the shape of the well-known raspberry potato. That’s why shredded chips all have the same thickness and length.

Potato powder is obtained by drying potatoes. Raspatat is therefore not made from fresh potatoes. The advantage is that this potato powder can be stored next to the refrigerator. It does not spoil easily and therefore can be stored for one year.

Want to make your own rasp fries?
It is possible to make ras fries yourself. After all, the only ingredients are water and potato powder. The correct ratio is 1 kilogram of potato powder to approximately 1.75 liters of water. You need to have a special device to size the shredded chips. Of course, grated chips can also be made in other ways.

Where does the name RAS come from?
The name RAS relates to the creator of the raspatat. The name has been around since 1953 and is patented by the Rixona company. This patent actually involves obtaining potato powder. This method originated from an American named Richard Anthony Simon Templeton. This is where the name RAS comes from. This is the agreement between the two parties in 1953.

Used car prices in the Netherlands fell for the first time this year. Data were obtained from the vehicle sales platform AutoScout24. According to the platform, the reason for the decrease is the summer holiday.

How much are used car prices in the Netherlands?

AutoScout24 stated that during the summer holidays, people’s interests are generally towards vacationing, so the decrease in prices may be due to this.
 
An average used car was sold for 23,531 euros in July. This rate is 1.2 percent less than the previous month. At the beginning of this year, the average price of second-hand was 22,158 euros. There has been no decline in used car prices since the spring of 2021.
 
On the other hand, the increase in second-hand items in other European countries continues. Prices continued to rise in France, Austria and Belgium last month, while Germany saw a small decline of 0.2 percent.
 
Germany is still at the top of Europe in this field, with an average used car price of 27,361 euros.
