Dean's super simple potato chips

Ingredients

    • 3-5 potatoes
    • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
    • Grapeseed oil

Preparation

Baking Directions:

Slice the purple or russet potatoes using a mandolin on the thinnest setting, then rinse in warm water. Place potatoes on a paper towel to soak up some of the moisture.  Fill a large pot with about 2 inches of oil (vegetable, grape seed, corn or safflower) and heat the oil between 340 and 360 degrees Fahrenheit. Cook the potatoes between 4 and 8 minutes, depending on your chip preference. (For a chewier chip, lower the heat and cook the potatoes longer; higher heat and a faster cooking time will produce a crispier chip.) Wait until the potatoes are slightly browned around the edges, then remove from the oil, place on a paper towel to soak up excess oil, and, while they’re still hot, toss in a bowl with kosher or sea salt. Remove from the bowl and place on another clean paper towel.For added flavor, try tossing the chips with a little cayenne or ancho chili powder, parmesan cheese, truffle salt, or olive oil combined with chopped garlic and parsley.
