I am so happy to have found a yummy potato chip for my little ones! All Mommy made yeah! I guess I really hadn't thought about it before. Just sharing [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]
I'm trying homemade potato chips tonight. Thanks for posting about homemade chips because you are the one who got me trying this. I always wondered if I could make them being that there are no safe alternatives for my son but never looked it up. I am soaking my thinly sliced potatoes now and will be fryin them soon.

How did they turn out?
It's funny, my girls prefer the potato chips and don't like mashed,baked or even french fries.
I just slice thin and fry [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
They turned out well. I found a recipe which said to soak the thinly sliced potatoes in salt water for at least 30 min. to get the starch out so they come crispy. Drain well and I dried them with paper towels. I fried them in canola oil.
They were very good. I saved the rest in a bowl with a lid. I put 2 knapkins to keep dry but some of them got soft in the morning. But most of them are still crispy and still yummy.
My son also doesn't eat mashed potatoes or fries. I'm going to try sweet potato chips soon.

OOOHH Yummy idea! I will try the soaking tip since we definitely can't have 2nd day soggy "chips"
