    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F and position oven rack in the center of the oven.
    2. Rinse and dry your sweet potatoes thoroughly and slice them as uniformly thin as possible. If you have a mandolin, use it. Otherwise, use a very sharp knife to get these uniformly thin. Know that chips that are too thick in parts won't crisp up all the way. Still delicious, just not "chip" crispiness.
    3. Toss slices in a touch of organic virgin olive oil to lightly coat, then sprinkle with sea salt. Lay out in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for about 2 hours, flipping chips once at halfway point to ensure even cooking. I also rotated mine for more even cooking (optional but recommended).
    4. Remove once crisp and golden brown. Some may feel a little tender in the middle but take them out and let them rest for 10 minutes or so to crisp up before sampling. Serve immediately.
     
    NOTES
    *Note: Know that chips that are too thick in some spots may not crisp up all the way. They're still delicious, just not as crispy as the uniformly thin chips. It takes practice!
    *I recommend organic sweet potatoes for taste and health reasons, since you don't peel off the skin where pesticides can reside.
