Homemade Potato Chips Recipe



  • 4 baking potatoes (1 1/2 lbs.) — sliced paper thin
  • 3 quarts olive oil
  • Coarse sea salt
  1. Soak potato slices in 3 quarts cold water for 1 hour, changing the water every 20 minutes. Or rinse potato slices under cold running water until the water runs clear, about 15 minutes. Drain and dry potato slices on paper towels.
  2. Heat oil in a Dutch oven or electric deep fryer to 350°F. Working in batches to avoid overcrowding, fry potato slices until golden brown, about 1 minute. Drain potato chips on paper towels, sprinkle them with salt to taste, and serve.NOTES : Paper-thin slices of potato deep-fried in olive oil.

    To make these chips, the potatoes must be sliced paper thin with a vegetable peeler or a mandolin if you have one. To assure that the potatoes cook through without burning, they must be fried at 350°F instead of 365°F, the temperature at which most foods are fried.
