“Why,” I wondered, “have I not yet tried to make potato chips?” So I decided to experiment with the three sweet potatoes (note: not yams) we’d been gifted but hadn’t yet found a use for. I just tossed them, thinly sliced (mandolines are SO useful!), into some very hot vegetable oil in a small pan (to maximize the deepness without wasting a lot of oil), spread them onto a paper towel when they were done, and salted them generously. Too bad I had no sea salt. Admittedly, more chips turned out burnt than tasty, but the results weren’t half-bad for a first try with no instructions!
