Homemade Potato Chips
A potato chip recipe posted to the forum, using potatoes and oil for deep frying.

Ingredients:

  • 6 or more medium lg. potatoes
  • Oil or fat for deep frying
  • Salt

Preparation:

Wash and peel the potatoes. Slice very thin.

An old fashioned cabbage slicer can be used (careful of the fingers) - or use a sharp knife or food processor with a thin slicing blade.

Put the slices at once into a bowl of cold water and let stand for at least one hour. Ice water is best, but you can set the whole bowl in the refrigerator if you wish. Dry well by shaking them in a towel.

Fry in hot oil at 375 degrees F. until a light golden brown. Don't try frying too many at once, better to put one layer on the frying basket. Drain on paper towels or any kind of plain crumpled absorbent paper.

If you haven't any paper, use a worn dish towel. Salt lightly. These can be kept for some time if they are sealed into plastic bags or containers after they have cooled.

Maryland Potato Chips, Member hellopossum

Shake a little Old Bay seasoning on them when they come out of the fryer. Yummy!
