Sometimes you just want a chip. When you’re pregnant that might be more often. So when you see both sweet purple potatoes at the farmer’s market, you can’t help but buy a half pound of each and make your own chips at home. Or maybe you just buy a bag on your way home… but seriously these are worth trying.
You may be surprised at the soaking step - this actually helps to remove some of the starch, allowing the potatoes to crisp better. This is especially important for the purple potatoes, as I find them much starchier than the sweet potatoes.
It’s also a bit tedious to flip every single slice over, but I found it helped immensely to create evenly-crisped slices. You’ll want to use a separate baking sheet for each type of potato as the cooking times may also vary. I found the purple potatoes took about 5 minutes longer.
