We made our own salt and vinegar chips. You might wonder why in the world I would do such a thing, but go ahead and peek at the list of ingredients. Now, if you take a look at the list of ingredients on a bag of chips from the store you’ll find some other ingredients that you can’t buy at a grocery store. We figured it was worth a try, and know what? It was both fun and delicious. 

These chips don’t keep well, so eat them while they are fresh. It’s a fun activity that shows you exactly what goes into a potato chip (with no added chemicals). The coolest part was that we measured the oil before and after frying, and those chips hardly soaked up any of the oil. Interesting!

  • Can I double or triple this recipe to feed a crowd?

    You definitely can double or triple this batch. However, keep in mind that these chips will not keep well and you want to eat them when they are fresh.
  • How should I slice the potatoes?

    You can use the slicer on your food processor, a mandolin, or just show off your mad knife skills. We actually tried a few different slicer options and settled on using the long slit side on a cheese grater.
  • Sweet Potato Chips:

    Want a healthier option, or just don’t love russet potatoes? Use sweet potatoes instead!
