Using a spider (pic #2) press down the chips, turning when brown on one side. Continue to fry until both sides are golden brown. approx. 1-2min.
Drain on paper towels, blotting.
Sprinkle with salt while hot.
Separate each vegetable and place on an oiled parchment lined baking sheet.

Yams will soften and glisten but not crisp as they have a lot of natural sugar.
Sprinkle lightly with salt immediately when removed from oven.
