Purple Sweet Potato Chips

First glance at this photo without looking the title, my friends thought it's not purple sweet potato. I had this sweet potato for a long time and I don't know what to do with it. For a change, I made it into chips. Well, not bad although the color is not that appetizing.

1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into very thin slices
2 cups iced water
oil for deep frying
sugar for dusting

Soaked the sliced sweet potato in iced water for at least 30 minutes.
Drain and allow to dry on paper towels.
Heat the oil in the frying pan. Deep fry sweet potato until crisp.
Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with sugar before serving.

I love purple potatoes but have never had purple sweet potatoes! And I can never find purple any potatoes any more! :) Thanks for linking this tasty treat up to Friday Potluck!

I am crazy about purple sweet potatoes but usually eat them steamed or boiled. This sounds like an even better way to munch on them. Thanks for linking this up to Sweets for a Saturday.

Finally I have found the recipe for these! I love sweet potato chips! They're much better (and hopefully healthier) than the regular potato ones but I only had the store bought chips. I can't wait to make these myself :) The photo is mouth watering.
