How to Make Vinegar & Salt Chips


  2. Gather your ingredients.
  3. Cut the potato into 1/8-inch (.3cm) slices.
  4. Chef’s Tip: A mandoline is a great tool for this step, but watch your fingers when slicing that tater.
  5. Place the sliced potatoes into a bowl of cold water, and allow them to sit for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. Rinse and drain the potatoes.
  7. Add the cup of vinegar and water with the salt into a bowl, and stir until the salt is completely dissolved.
  8. Add the potato slices, and allow them to rest for 2 hours.
  9. Add about 2 inches (5cm) of oil to a pot, and bring up to 320f (160c).
  10. Remove the potato slices from the vinegar/water bath, and thoroughly dry on paper towels.
  11. Add to the oil in batches.
  12. Allow to deep fry until crisp, about 4 to 5 minutes.
  13. Drain on paper towels, and sprinkle with additional salt.
  14. Chef’s Note: You could even make these healthier by baking them in the oven.
  16. Serve with a sandwich, or just eat them out of the bowl. Enjoy
  17. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
