Carrot Chips

Recipe Image Not AvailableMy husband sent me a recipe for baked carrot chips that he'd found online. We tried it a couple of times, but the chips never got crispy without getting burnt. So we dusted off our deep fryer and gave our own version a try.

3 large carrots (¾ lb)
Peanut oil (or other oil appropriate for deep frying)
¼ t salt, or to taste
  1. Heat oil in a deep pan or electric fryer to 400°F.
  2. While oil is heating, peel each carrot into long strips from stem to root with a vegetable peeler. You will have about ½ lb strips. Set aside remaining carrot pieces for another use.
  3. Deep fry carrot strips in small batches for 3-5 min, until bubbling subsides and chips turn a golden brown.
  4. Remove to paper towels and sprinkle with salt. Chips will crisp as they cool.
  5. Leftovers, if there are any, should be stored in an airtight container.
