Sweet Potato Chips

Sweet Potato Chips

Genetically Modified foods are becoming more well-known and chips are one of the biggest culprits containing GMO oils.  These sweet potato chips are an easy alternative, cooked in organic coconut oil and organic grass-fed butter. The bold flavors complement your favorite creamy dip, but are also a great stand alone treat.

Ingredients

  • 1-2 large sweet potatoes peeled
  • Organic butter and coconut oil for frying
  • Sea salt
  • Cinnamon

Directions

  1. Slice the sweet potatoes as thin as possible using a knife, or preferably a mandolin.
  2. Place sliced potatoes in ice water for about 10-20 minutes. This allows them to curl, giving each a unique shape.
  3. Cover the bottom of a small frying pan 1/4 inch high with about half coconut oil and half butter (depending on your flavor preferences) – turn on burner on medium-low and allow oil mixture to heat up.
  4. When oil is ready (you will hear it start to sizzle) place sweet potato slices in a single layer on the pan.
  5. Let fry for a few minutes on each side, or until potato chip edges begin to brown and bubbles start forming.
  6. Remove from oil and place on paper towels to dry – salting each generously and sprinkling with cinnamon.
