View Full Version : Dill Pickle Chips??
08-19-2005, 04:36 PM
I did a search on the boards and didn't see anything about these. Has anybody found a way to make dill pickle potato chips (like the Lay's version)?
I tried Alissa's vinegar and salt chips and they were okay, but my five-year-old daughter LOVES the dill pickle chips and has requested I "make some like those". So, I'm on the hunt. I've gotten the kids adjusted to fruit/veggie smoothies in the morning so if I can find a good chip recipe I'll be making the last conversion step on their lunches for school. :)
Add dill seed to the vinegar. That's how you make dill pickles. Dill seed is in the spice section of the store or HFS. Then the potatoes should be soaked in that a while, haven't seen her recipe you spoke of so don't know if you already know that.

Doe, THANKS! How easy. Okay, I've got the potatoes and will get the dill seed tomorrow. The more sour/tangy, the better my little girl likes it. :)

Do they have to be potato?
I'm addicted to salty/sour flavors as well, and I make pickeled cucumber to satiate those cravings! :) I slice up the cucumbers and stick them in a jar with apple cider vinegar, fresh dill, garlic, water and salt. Left over night in the fridge they are quite tasty! :) When they are gone I add more cucumber slices to the same brine. This seems to work for about 3 rounds of pickle chips. Tasty! :D

If you are going to use potatoes, you may choose to soak first in water overnight to remove the "starchy" taste, also yams, sweet potatoes and parsnips make really great chips, (soak these also)
Good luck, we make chips all the time out of our veggies, then they dissapear with Alissa's dips and salsa's yummy.

I got the dill this weekend, but still haven't made the chips. It would be a good idea to soak the potatoes first. Maybe the starch absorbed a lot of the tangy flavor last time.
And starrrie, no I guess it doesn't HAVE to be potatoes. I was wanting something to put in my little girl's lunch because she loves those chips, but hey, I can put the cucumbers in a baggie. I'll make some and see if she likes them. If not, I will. :)
