I made potato chips!
Wanna know how?
I sliced a potato with a potato slicer into really thin slices and I put it into a pot of boiling oil. Voila’.
Some of the slices turned out just like standard chips. Some rolled themselves into little bugle shapes and others clumped together so that there was no hope of wresting them apart. All in all it wasn’t the most successful experiment in the world but I wanted potato chips and I didn’t have any on hand so I did what I had to do to make them.
What is interesting to me is the chips I made were sweeter in flavor than the kind I usually get like Lays or Utz’s. . And I just used plain old bagged white potatoes from Redners and olive oil because I ran out of regular vegetable oil.
Just watch out if you try this at home. Boiling oil is no fun if you get it on your beautiful skin. BE SAFE.
