Making Potato Chips

See the YouTube vid by Smoky Ribs BBQ & Southern Cuisine.  Contains several tips to avoid greasy chips by removing starch and how long to fry.

  1. Cut potato slices with mandoline about 1/8″ thick
  2. Soak slices in ice cold water to remove some starch
  3. Mix 2 qts water and 2 T white vinegar and bring to a boil. Add slices and leave in for 3 minutes exactly.
  4. Spread slices separately on paper towels to dry some until oil is ready.
  5. Put a couple of inches of oil in CI chicken fryer and heat to 325.
  6. Drop in slices and fry to remove the water. Of course, the bubbling is the water boiling out and when there are no more bubbles the water is gone and they are done.
  7. Dip out and onto paper towels, add salt and pepper and anything else while damp and hop. Let drain and cool to crisp.
