Useful tips for making homemade sweet potato chips

  • For this chips use ORGANIC SWEET POTATOES as you will leave the skin on. If you don't use organic one, be sure to peel off the skin. First rinse and dry sweet potatoes the slice it to 1mm using mandolin slicer into rounds. You can also use sharp knife but be sure to cut evenly the slices. 

  • Spread the sweet potato slices on prepared baking sheet in a single layer, leaving some space around each slice. When there are too many slices on the baking sheet, the heat from the tray creates steam and chips will be tender instead of crisp. Brush gently each slice with olive oil and sprinkle with some salt (optional).

  • The time of baking depends on thickness of the slices and the strength of your oven so you may need to bake them a couple of minutes more or less. In any case sweet potato chips go from perfect to burnt very quickly so watch them carefully while baking. Leave the chips on the sheet for about 10 minutes - they will crisp up a little more as they cool.

Then transfer the chips to a bowl or plastic bag to store.
