Homemade Crispy Potato Chip

- Wash, scrub and peel the potatoes (leave skin on, if you want extra dietary fiber).

- Using a very sharp knife, cut potatoes into very thin slices (about ¼ - ⅛ inch rounds) and soak them in a bowl of iced water.

- Place the bowl in your refrigerator for 30-40 minutes. This will help to remove all the starch from the potatoes, making them ready for deep frying – make the chips crispier.

You can also use a mandolin or blade attachment of food processor to slice potato paper thin.

- Remove, rinse a few times (water must be clear in the last rinse) and let drain completely. Then lay flat on kitchen towels and pat dry.

- Heat oil in a deep fryer or a large saucepan until very hot.

- Gently lower potato slices into hot oil in small batches and deep fry for 3 minutes, or until crisp and golden brown.

- Remove with a slotted spoon, shake off excess oil and drain on paper towels to remove the rest of the oil. Then transfer them to a big bowl.

- Dust with salt (or add your favorite chip seasonings) immediately while the chips are still hot so that the flavor adheres to the hot oil.
