View Full Version : Making Chips! Care to share your favorites?

I am thinking of trying to make chips in my dehydrator. I think I read that someone had made sweet potato chips. Do you just slice them and dehydrate. Do you put seasonings on them. How long do you dehydrate them for?What other veggies can you use.
Boy aren't I just full of questions today. :p
Oohh, good question. The first batch I made of sweet potato chips, I just sliced, sprinkled a little oil and sea salt, and dehydrated. They were nice and crisp, but a little too starchy. Someone suggested soaked and rinsing to remove starch, so I did. They tasted delicious and not starchy but they never got crisp -- just very chewy and leathery.
Anyone found the perfect method?
BTW, I use a potato peeler and this makes perfect, paper-thin chips, easily.

My favorite are yam chips, slice in a saladaco, or slice very very very thin, then soak to remove the starch, then place on your dehydrator trays, and dehydrate until crispy.
Place in a freezer zip lock, if they get rubbery, re-dehydrate again.
I don't add any seasonings at all, I make a nice pico de gallo to go with these, or a cashew red pepper cheese recipe, or a nut butter pate.
I also like parsnips, carrots, zucchini (slice these thicker, because they turn into paper).
good to have you hear

My sweet potato chips turn out great (light and crisp) ,but I slice them EXTREMELY thin on my mandoline /slicer thing and dehydrate for 10+ hours .....then I drizzle a bit of agave nectar on...yum ,they also make good "corn flakes" with almond milk -great as a grain free cereal!

I'm going to try something new.....
My potato chips didn't turn out that great (my mom loved them so I gave them to her! :) ) They just didn't have the right consistency for my pallate.
Here's what I'm going to do: Slice some Taro root thin and soak in beet juice then dehydrate! Has anyone done this before? I got the idea from Terra Chips (my FAVORITE!) I want to try to make my own so they're not cooked.
