How to Make Crystal Clear Potato Crisps

By Andrew Liszewski on at

The results might look like some kind of fancy sugary confection, but this detailed Instructable shows you how to make a see-through snack that tastes exactly like potato crisps. Minus the fat, greasy fingers, and guilt.

The recipe does call for potatoes, but they're actually used to create a flavoured stock along with potato starch and gelatine. Just make sure you can dedicate quite a bit of time to the process which includes baking the chips for 8 to 10 hours before the gelatine chips are fried. But the results are remarkably impressive, and supposedly taste exactly like the real thing. If you're looking for a unique treat for a summer BBQ, you've just found it.
