TIP OF THE DAY: Potato Peel Chips

Don’t send those potato peels to the trash bin.

Turn them into chips!

You can make this recipe with the peels from just two potatoes. Or, for a large lot, freeze the peels until you’re ready to defrost and bake.

Sweet potato peels work, too, as do carrot and other root vegetable peels.

RECIPE: POTATO PEEL CHIPS

Ingredients

  • Peelings from 4 potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper or 1 teaspoon barbecue rub
  • Optional garnishes: shredded cheddar and chopped scallions, grated parmesan
  •  
    Preparation

    1. PREHEAT the oven to 400°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.

    2. TOSS the potatoes with the olive oil, salt and pepper, and bake until crisp, 15 to 20 minutes.

    3. SEASON with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with garnishes and serve immediately.
