These easy potato chips will satisfy that salty snack craving, and you get to control the salt. 

What You'll Need

  • 6 or more medium potatoes
  • Oil for deep frying
  • Salt

How to Make It

    1. Heat the oil (an inch or two) in a deep heavy saucepan, saute pan, or deep fat fryer to 370° F.
    2. Wash and peel the potatoes. Slice as thin as possible.
    3. An old fashioned cabbage slicer can be used or use a sharp knife or food processor with a thin slicing blade.
    4. Immediately immerse the potato slices in a bowl of ice cold water and let stand for at least one hour.  Dry them thoroughly by shaking them in a towel.
    5. Fry the chips in small batches in the hot oil until a light golden brown.
    6. Drain on paper towels or brown paper bags.
    7. Salt lightly. Cool the chips and enjoy, or store them at room temperature in a food storage bag or covered container.
