Potato Skin Chips

Homemade potato Chips

Potato skins are often discarded when preparing potatoes. Instead, roast them in the oven with a drizzle of olive oil and pinch of salt. Treat your guests to a delicious, crispy pre-dinner snack.

Ingredients (serves: 4, as a snack)

The peal of 5–6 potatoes
1 litre natural oil (e.g., canola oil or peanut oil) 
1 teaspoon sea salt
0.5 teaspoons chili flakes

Directions

 

1. Dry the potato skins well with paper towels – the dryer the potato skins are, the crispier the chips will be. 

2. Add the oil to a large heavy-bottomed saucepan, and heat over medium heat to 165°C (use a thermometer).
