Apple Chips

Apple ChipsOne of my favorite snacks is Carrot Chips. I've found the process works well with jicama and radishes, too. After a trip to our local orchard, we came home with a big bag of apples and a head full of apple recipes. This is the first one we tried. Yum.

2 medium apples (12 oz)
Oil for deep frying
½ t cinnamon
  1. Heat oil in a deep pan or electric fryer to 400°F.
  2. While oil is heating, core apples and slice thinly, less than ⅛-in thick.
  3. Deep fry carrot strips in small batches for 4-6 minutes or until deep golden brown and the edges are crispy, turning once.
  4. Remove to paper towels and sprinkle with cinnamon. Chips crisp as they cool.
