Not everything is complicated

Potatoes are so simple. You can do nearly anything to them and it will probably turn out. But all I want is salt so there's really only one thing to do. (And seriously, for some reason a salt lick sounds tasty right now...) With a purple potato that had gone a little too far for baking or roasting and a kitchen mandolin, it took 5 minutes to make the PERFECT snack.

You can see light through these! 


Look, if you need directions for this, I don't know what to say. Slice potatoes as thin as possible. Heat up oil til it's shimmering. Put a slice in. If it takes too long and gets soggy, turn the heat up. If it burns, turn it down. 

Fry the chips, put on a draining rack and hit with salt as soon as they come out. 

Eat. Stuff your face and lick the salt from your fingers. Sigh and enjoy life for those 5 minutes.

  1. Yum! Almost worth driving the hour to "drop by" for a snack!
