The Unplugged Project theme for this week is change, so we decided to change our regular homemade potato chips for fall.
We peeled a couple of potatoes, and notched them on top, so they looked kind of like elongated pumpkins. The knife work was too hazardous for little hands, so I did the cutting.
Then, I sliced them into thin slices, and we brushed them with olive oil mixed with a couple of dashes of turmeric. Turmeric is a nice mild spice, which is perfect, because we really wanted it more for color, than for flavor. We also added a pinch of tarragon to the stems, to give them a hint of green.
We baked them on a cookie sheet for about 12 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit, turned them over, and baked them for an additional 12 minutes. Then, I pulled them from the oven, and gave them a couple quick dashes of salt, and served them up to the kids.
They didn't last long - proving, that sometimes change is good.
