No nasty additives - healthy potato chips!

These healthy, homemade sweet potato crisps are just as crunchy and addictive as any chip out there. They are perfect for satisfying a crunchy, salty craving, while being in control of the ingredients. 

Unless you are an absolute whiz with a knife, sweet potato chip slicing is a challenge. The key to making crunchy, sweet potato chips is using a good vegetable slicer or mandolin and will guaranteed uniform, paper-thin slices.

Dehydrating retains the native taste of a sweet potato. Nothing is altered or destroyed by high heat, so your chips stay packed with flavour and nutrients. A good quality salt is really all you need, but for a wicked BBQ taste, sprinkle with smoked paprika. Then try stopping at a single handful!

We sampled several sweet potato varieties and found the common orange Garnet produces the best chip.
