Instructions

  1. Prepare the skins

    • If your skins weren’t previously washed, rinse them under tap water and towel-dry them

    | If you don’t have enough peels to fry up at one go, you maystore them in the fridge in an airtight container for a few days until you have enough to make a bowl full of chips!

    Prepare the skins


  2. Prepare the five-spice salt

    • In a smallbowl, mix the salt and five-spice together and set it aside
    Prepare the five-spice salt


  3. Frying

    • Set a pot of oil on the stove over high heat
    • When the oil is hot enough, add the potato skins, a few at a time so as not to overcrowd the pot
    • Depending on the size and thickness of your potato peel, flip them after 1-2 minutes so they fry on both sides evenly
    • Remove them out of the oil with tongs or a skimmer when they turn golden brown and drain over a rack
    Frying


Plate and Serve!

Sprinkle the five-spice salt over the chips while they’re still hot (this is the optimal time to season, as they adhere best while the chips are hot)

Try this out with different root vegetable peels such as sweet potato and parsnip.

Plate and Serve!
