Air Fryer: Homemade Chips

My mother is multi-talented.  In addition to being a great chef, she is also a flamenco dancer, champion knitter, embroider, biker, and nia participant. In the kitchen, she is known to experiment, and loves to buy random kitchen gadgets to try different cooking techniques. She owns a dehydrator, a Vitamix (who doesn’t?), more pots and pans than imaginable, and…..an air fryer…..yes, an air fryer. What *is* an air fryer? An air fryer fries your food without the grease and fat. Last night, we opened it and made potato chips (seemed like an easy recipe to try without too many steps or ingredients!)

Simple slicing of the potato.

Pretty thinly sliced, if I say so myself.

Soak in water, replacing the water frequently, to remove the starch from the potatoes.

Love the air fryer. It makes the food scrumptious, delicious, and cooks SO fast. I can’t wait to try more recipes this summer!!!! Tomorrow, sweet potato chips!
