Serious potato chips for the serious potato ho.
As usual, just like with all of the recipe roundups and challenged I am involved in, I am getting in just under the wire…but when you taste these you will forgive me..oh yes you will.
First of all, if you have never made potato chips….it is time to get on the bus. The homemade ones are so much better than anything you will find in a bag at the store unless you really like stale, oversalted, and chemical flavored. These are hot, fresh, and spicy. Just what you would expect for this particular round up…right? And just what you would expect from Duchess Grace.
It is best of you have an electric deep fryer. You can do them on the stove with a candy/fryer thermometer but it is admittedly hard to keep the oil at just the right temp. The fryer you just plug in, fill with oil, fry, turn off…and clean the oil once a month or oftener if you fry alot.
The best oil to fry with is peanut oil. It is light, renders everythign crispy and delicious and has a high smoking point. (Drunken Blogger, if you are reading please note that that said high smoking POINT not pot. )
If you are using organic potatoes then scrub them and dry them, no need to peel. If your potatoes are not organic please peel them well. Most of the toxins end up in that ‘thar skin. How many potatoes? How many can you eat?
I use a meat slicer set on #1 to slice the potatoes, the thinner the better. Separate them out and let them dry a little while the oil heats up to 365.
Put the potato slices in the hot oil a few at a time, and stir them while they fry. They will probably get more brown than the ones from the store do.. No worries…they are amazing.
When they are golden and crisp turn them out on a absorbent surface to drain and sprinkle them…with….:::are you ready?::::::: The McCormick Cinnamon Chipotle Rub.
Wow. Just wow. Sit back, and pose as the admiring looks are lavished upon you by your new admirers and fans. As long as you have potatoes and the Chipotle Rub you wil have them…umm…eating out of your hand.
