How To Make Homemade Potato Chips Plus Recipe

We enjoy making our own homemade potato chips and then flavoring them as desired. You will need a deep fryer for this recipe and several paper towels.

Homemade Potato Chips Recipe

4-6 white potatoes
vegetable oil (for deep frying)

Wash and scrub the skins of your potatoes. Remove skins from potatoes using a paring knife or vegetable peeler. Using a paring knife, cut thin round or oval slices. Cut out and remove any bad parts. Fill a large bowl with cold tap water and soak your slices in the water for 30 minutes. Remove slices from water and pat dry with paper towels. Turn your deep fryer on and set the temperature at 350 degrees. When the oil is hot and has reached the desired temperature, place a handful of slices into the frying basket and drop down into the oil. Deep fry your slices until they are crisp and lightly browned. This process usually takes 2-4 minutes. Remove basket from hot oil and let it drain over the deep fryer for 2-3 minutes. Line a large plate or platter with 3 thick paper towels. Pour the chips onto the plate and use a separate paper towel to blot off any excess oil. Season with salt if desired.

Optional: If you like your potato chips seasoned with Old Bay, place some Old Bay Spice in an old salt shaker. Shake the desired amount on the chips. Wait 1 minute, flip the chips over and season the other side.

Storage: Once the chips have cooled, place them in an airtight plastic container. If you own a plastic cookie canister, this will work well for storing them.
