This is Martyn from www.AmateurChef.co.uk. This is my 5th video now I think and I am still getting used to videos so please bear with me.
This video is on how to make sweet potato chips. I have decided to do this video as I personally love sweet potato chips, and they can actually be nicer than normal chips when done right.
Putting some spices onto the chips can really make the difference and add some really nice favours.
The first thing you want to do is to peel the sweet potato. You could make some chunky wedges and leave the skin on, I have done and they are really nice but I don’t think you can beat chips.
I have cut the ends of so that the chips are nice and square.
Once you have tidied away the potato peel you want to start cutting your chips. You can make your chips as chunky or as thin as you would like.
I love fries so normally have them thin but my wife likes chunky chips so today I’m going to them not to thin but not to chunky that way we are both happy.
When cutting the potatoes try to cut them all around the same size, they should then all cook around the same amount of time. If you do them all different sizes then you will find the smaller ones cook and potential burn before the bigger ones.
I have completely chosen the wring knife when cutting these potatoes so the chopping board is moving all over which is a bit of a nightmare.
Now that you have gotten all of your chips you want to start on the spice marinade for them. Get a plastic bowl and this is where you will add the oil and spices to give your chips their great flavour
in that bowl put 2 table spoons of olive oil.
Next you want to put 1 table spoon of honey as I find that this adds a little bit of additional sweetness to the chips.
Now onto the spices you want to add 2 teaspoons of paprika and then 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper. I have tried it with 2 but felt that was too much so id suggest sticking with 1.
Finally you want to add a teaspoon of garlic powder and then get a spoon and give it all a mix till its all fully combined.
Throw all of your chips into the bowl, if you have done a good amount of chips then you might want to do it in batches. I probably should have split this amount of chips into two batches to really make sure they all got a coating.
You really want to get yours hand in there and mix it all up well so that all the chips get a nice covering.
Once they are all covered get a baking tray and lay the chips out on it, if you have any mixture left over pour this onto the chips.
You then want to pop these into the oven at around 180 degrees for about 20-30 minutes or until cooked. If your unsure get one out and give it a taste.
