Homemade Potato Chips


3-4 russet potatoes


½ cup distilled white vinegar

1 quart vegetable oil

Salt; or your desired chip seasoning


Wash potatoes and slice ¼” thick slices.

Place potatoes in a large bowl and fill with water.  Stir gently until starch begins to release.  Drain water. Repeat this step until water runs clear.

Once the water runs clean, add ½” cup vinegar plus 6 cups of water (or enough to cover potatoes) to the bowl with the potatoes. Let sit at least 30 minutes or at least 2 hours.

Once potatoes have sat in vinegar mixture, drain and pat dry.

In a large heavy pot with a fry thermometer attached, add oil and heat to 300 degrees.

Working in batches, fry potatoes, stirring occasionally until potatoes are golden brown.

Once the potatoes are golden brown, transfer to a paper towel lined wire rack and season with salt or desired season.

Continue cooking chips in batches, returning oil to 300 degrees each time.
