TODAY, A TWOFER….CHIPS THE WAY THEY SHOULD TASTE~ AND A BEAUTY TUTORIAL WORTH WATCHING~

Homemade potato chips….You haven’t LIVED til you’ve tried them!

Easy Peasy to make, a “Knock It Out Of The Park” hit to bring to your Fourth of July BBQ next week.

All you need, and MUST HAVE, is a mandeline and a candy thermometer…..and about an hour.

Worth it, trust me.

Start with two large scrubbed Russet potatoes, sliced to the thickness of about a dime on your mandeline.

then soak them in ice water for about five minutes to get rid of excess starch. This is what makes them so crispy and light.

Drain well on a paper towel,

Heat regular olive oil (not extra virgin, as the oil will burn) in a dutch oven or heavy bottomed pot until it reaches a temperature of 300 degrees, then place the chips in, no more than the pot can hold comfortably. Stir gently with a spider of slotted spoon until desired color.

I like mine on the darker side.

Drain on a paper towel, sprinkle with sea salt to taste, and be prepared to never want to eat a potato chip from a bag ever again! Thin, crisp and light as a feather, but SO flavorful!

Even though it’s pouring in Boston today, it’s a good day to take off the Crown and polish it a little so it will sparkle like a firecracker on the Fourth of July!
