The Basic Fundamentals

Soaking the sliced potatoes in salted water will aide in drawing out the starch that must be rinsed away before frying.

1 1/2 lbs russet potatoes, rinsed
2 Tbsp kosher salt
Vegetable oil
1 tsp Creole or Cajun seasoning

Slice the potatoes to an even 1/8-inch thickness using a mandoline. Place the potato slices in a Medium bowl filled halfway with water while prepping them. Sprinkle 4 tablespoons of salt over the potatoes & stir the mixture well being certain they are submerged. Chill 2 hours.

Pour the oil to a depth of 1-inch in a 3 1/2 quart saucepan & heat to 350 degrees. Meanwhile, drain the potato slices & rinse under cool water. Fill a clean bowl with water, add the potatoes then drain again. Place the slices over paper towels. Remove the excess moisture by topping with additional paper towels & gently blot them dry. Drop the potatoes into the oil, in batches, being certain not to overcrowd the pan & tousle the potatoes during frying with a spider so they cook evenly. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until evenly golden brown. Remove the potatoes from the oil & place over paper towels. Gently blot with paper towels to remove excessive grease. 

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Transfer the chips to paper towel lined half sheet pans, placing them in a single layer. Bake the pans 7 minutes. Remove from the oven. Sprinkle the chips with the seasoning. Cool completely. 

The Extra Point

A variety of seasonings may be added to the chips after frying, if desired. Use your favorite flavor combination to handcraft a signature batch.

How To Store Russet Potatoes

A few basic fundamentals will have a stash of potatoes ready for most any kitchen task. Follow these valuable pointers for the best advice on the subject.

rebecca gordon buttermilk lipstick Southern Recipes & How To's Easy Tailgate Recipes RebeccaGordon ButtermilkLipstickThe Technique

Store potatoes in a cool, dark location. I prefer to stash them in a bowl inside my pantry. They keep several weeks & the cooler location keeps sprouting at bay. Avoid storing potatoes in the refrigerator as the starch will convert to sugar. If the potato skins turn green, discard them. The green color comes from chlorophyll & it’s a warning signal. It’s caused by exposure to light & indicates the tuber may have higher than normal amounts of solanine present which could potentially lead to a variety of health issues.
