Sweet Potato Chips

Fried as chips, sweet potatoes are a fun alternative to potato chips. The trick is to let the sliced sweet potatoes to dry a bit before deep-frying. The chips are very crispy and have a rich texture. Slightly sweet balanced with some salt call out for an ice cold beer.

Wash and dry the sweet potato. Do not peel. The chips on the left are cut with a vegetable peeler.  The chips on the right are simply sliced thin with a knife. Let the strips of sweet potato dry on cooking paper or newspaper until the flesh dries out.

Deep-fry in vegetable oil until golden brown and sprinkle with salt as soon it is removed from the oil. Eat immediately.
