Let’s Make Homemade Potato Chips:

  • Scrub your potatoes clean and slice them into thin pieces. The thinner, the better. If they are a little on the thicker side, that’s OK. But, you may need to cook those a little longer.
  • Place the sliced potatoes into a large bowl. Fill the bowl with cold water. Be sure to cover all your pieces of potato. Let them soak for a bit.
  • Next, drain the potato slices and pat dry.
  • In a heavy duty, large skillet or pot, heat up the oil. Your oil temperature should be 375 degrees. Fry the potatoes in batches for approx 3-4 minutes. Be sure to stir them frequently!
  • Once they are done, carefully, remove them with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel lined plate or baking sheet to drain. If you wish to salt them, do it now! That way, the salt will stick to your chips.

A few notes:

  • You can peel your potatoes before slicing, but, it’s not necessary.  Also, russet potatoes work best.
  • If you don’t have a thermometer..stick the handle of a wooden spoon into the oil. If it’s ready, the oil will bubble around the handle.
  • Store any leftover chips in a sealed container.
