Sweet Potato Chips

Sweet Potato Chips | www.thepeachkitchen.comToday I woke up with two messages on my phone…

It has the words I’m sorry and I love you.

peanutbutter and I had a misunderstanding last night…

I’m blaming it on his “just-woke-up” mood and my, I’m guessing, PMS.

The PERFECT mood was ruined.

Well, nothing’s perfect, really.

Not a group, not one couple, not a person.

Not even this sweet potato.

I bought this at the market the other day because it has the most perfect shade of purple.

Yeah, I have a thing for colors. My name is Peach and my daughter’s name is Purple and when I see peanutbutter, I feel like there’s a rainbow inside me all waiting to burst out..

Anyway, I imagined a deep Purple caramelized sweet potato for breakfast this morning.

But when I started cutting my sweet potato,  I was surprised to discover that it’s white on the inside.

So I thought of making it into chips, instead.

It turned out okay. Ykaie liked it. It didn’t turn out perfect or anything. I even burned the second batch.

But you know, Life is perfect that way…

….always a surprise, always imperfect.

hmmmmnn.. I wonder if they’re already selling Puto Bumbong on the next street.

gotta get my purple fix today….

Sweet Potato Chips | www.thepeachkitchen.comThere are many kinds of sweet potatoes and I’m really not an expert when it comes to it. I bought these at the market for P17 {40¢} because I loved the color. It was a surprise to me today that the inside turned out to be white, I was expecting Purple.

Ingredients
  • 3 pieces sweet potato
  • 4 cups of water
  • 3 tbsp vinegar
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
Directions
  1. Combine vinegar and water in a large bowl and set aside.
  2. Wash and scrub sweet potatoes until clean. Keep the skin intact for color. It's always nice to eat beautiful food, right? *wink*
  3. Slice thinly with a mandolin or a very sharp knife. I used a knife because my sis said we don't have a mandolin anymore.....tsk tsk...
  4. Once cut place in the water-vinegar mixture to prevent it from turning ugly brown..LOL!
  5. Drain and pat dry. Place in a bag or bowl and season with whatever seasoning you like. I used olive oil, salt and pepper.
  6. Place in a baking pan and bake in a pre-heated oven at 200°C for 20-30 minutes or until crispy and slightly brown.
Notes
you should eat it on the same day it was made or it will turn soft the next day.

    Alam mo, walang kamoteng ganyan dito. Ang sweet potato dito ay orange
    color. Miss ko pa rin ang purple kamote na isasawsaw sa asukal hehe.

    Your daughter’s name is Purple ?! That’s such a happy color :) I love colors too and yes I too pick vegetables and fruits looking at the color. These looks lovely crispy.

    At the Yummy Eats event, I got to taste sweet potato chips served with different kinds of dips…I forgot na the dips, but it goes well with savory dip.

    ps – teach me how you got the codes for +1, FB share and like, and Tweet. the one on my blog looked a little messy.

    As long as you have your loved ones with you to share these chips, that’s the most important and I would call that “perfect”.  

    About the purple sweet potato/yam.  I got “tricked” before too.  The purple skin yams got a white interior and the white skin yam will give you a purple interior!  :)  I used to make sweet potato puree for my babies so I had my fair shares of buying different color yams.  It’s good to consume food in colors of a rainbow!  :)  Hope you’ll get your more purple fix next time.

    I have only tried boiled sweet potato. Sometimes dipped to sugar or powdered milk. This looks interesting though. A healthy alternative to commercial potato chips.

    Visiting via Food Friday!

    Followed all the instructions and even kept them in longer but they came out soggy :( put the oven on broil and they seemed to crisp up a bit

      Did you slice them as thin as you can?

      You have to slice them really thin or else they will be soggy…. Thanks for dropping by Liza.
