1 California Sweetpotato

salt (optional)


Wash and dry your sweetpotato. Cut the potato in half. Use a mandoline to thinly slice the potato into 1/8th- or 1/16th-inch thick slices. Place the sliced potatoes into a bowl of cold water. Let them sit for 2 minutes, or until the water looks cloudy. Dump out the cloudy water and add new water. Let them soak again for 2 minutes, then dump out water and refill. Continue this process until the water is clear. Takes about 10 minutes (5 times refilling the water).

Place the soaked sweetpotato slices between two dish towels to dry them. Spread one layer of sweet potatoes (not touching) onto a layer of paper towels. Place in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes on high power. Flip potato slices to the other side and cook for 3 minutes on 50% power. If not crispy, cook for one minute increments at 50% power until crunchy. Be careful not to let them burn. Serve topped with a sprinkle of salt.
