Homemade Salt & Vinegar Chips

71 comments

Greetings!

Today has been a busy one getting ready for the market tomorrow. Tomorrow is our last market day and then we are taking some time off from the market so we can have some free weekends this summer. We are looking forward to it!

I also snuck in a quick run today. I had a little run in with a scary animal…a coyote! It was only about 15 feet ahead of me and it stopped and looked at me for the longest time. Then it just left and disappeared into the woods. Never know what you are going to see out here!

The run:

  • Distance: 4 miles
  • Time: 33:56
  • Avg pace: 8:29

 

Mile splits:

  • Mile 1: 8:45 (started off way too fast!)
  • Mile 2: 8:36
  • Mile 3: 8:39
  • Mile 4: 7:56 (rocked it!)

 

I have the race bug in a big way lately…specifically the 5k race bug! I have never run a 5k before and I am dying to run one soon. I’d like to find one for the 3rd or 4th week of August.

Dinner blew my mind. That Martha did it again!

Homemade Salt & Vinegar Chips (and S & V green beans!)

Salt & Vinegar fans rejoice! These S & V chips are a delicious and healthier alternative to the S & V potato chips I used to love as a kid. I also recommend trying the S & V green beans that I added to the recipe- they were hands down the best tasting green beans I have ever had! If you don’t want to bake these, you can grill them on the BBQ too.

Adapted from Martha Stewart and 101 Cookbooks.

Ingredients:

  • Approx 4 cups (or more) white vinegar
  • 4-5 medium potatoes, sliced into 1/4 inch rounds
  • 1-1.5 tsp coarse sea salt
  • Very small sprinkle of freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp Extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 handfuls fresh green beans, trimmed

 

Directions: Wash and slice up the potatoes into 1/4 inch rounds. Place in a medium sized pot. Wash and trim green beans and place in the same pot. Pour vinegar into pot until all the potatoes and green beans are covered by the vinegar. Bring to a boil and then reduce to medium heat for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit in pot for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, take a greased baking sheet and lay the potato rounds (not green beans yet!) flat on the sheet. Drizzle oil and mix with hands. Sprinkle salt and pepper on top. Bake for 30-35 minutes at 425F. After 30 minutes of baking, flip carefully and then take the green beans and place on the baking sheet. Drizzle oil and sprinkle more salt. Bake for another 10-15 minutes, watching carefully not to burn the potatoes or beans. Serve with ketchup and more sea salt if preferred. Enjoy!

The cooking process…

Slice the taters!

I used a mixture of red and new potatoes.

Into the pot ‘o vinegar!!!

I thought it was worth a shot to see if the green beans would work as well so I tossed them in too.

IMG_4877

Bring to a boil and cook for 5 minutes over medium. Remove from heat and let sit for 30 minutes.

I could not stop eating the green beans straight from the pot of vinegar…they are so addicting!!

After baking for 35 minutes at 425F:

Flip and add green beans and cook for another 10-15 mins:

Oh dear me.

Words cannot describe my joy.

I had it with a side of tomato paste.

This S & V idea is genius. Thank you Martha!

Eric is not a S & V fan and he loved these chips.

IMG_4898

Of course all kinds of ideas are flooding my mind now. I wonder what other veggies could be made like this? The possibilities are endless!

IMG_4900

The beans were so good.

I can’t wait to try these on the BBQ next time…yum!

IMG_4914

Well, I guess I better hit the hay as it is late, late, late. My goal is to get up and do 5 minutes of smiling meditation when my alarm goes off tomorrow morning. I’m sure that will go over swimmingly. lol.

Sleep tight!

What I love about coyotes is that they are more afraid of you than you are of them. It’s cougars and bears you have to look out for. Very cool animal sighting though.

I made these the other night, too! The whole house reeked of vinegar for the next two days, heh. :P I grilled mine with a grilling pan on the stove-top, but I bet oven-baked would be excellent too!

Growing up, I never knew what the fuss was with S&V chips. I tried them a couple times and wasn’t too impressed. THEN it all hit me one day. I fell in LOVE. The tang, the bite, the crunch. Mmmmm! These sound incredible, Ange!

It’s crazy that one can cook something in boiling/simmering VINEGAR?! Wow! As a high raw uncook, and I have said I am raw by default most of the time…heat and ovens tend to scare me b/c something can always boil or bubble over or make a total mess LOL anyway was a genius way to cook these! I pretty much need to get over my fear of boiling vats of hot liquid and try these…as you said, the possibilities are endless for other veggies to cook this way!

Have a great weekend, Angela!

I would never ever think to boil potatoes in a whole pot full of vinegar!! Craziness! But I am definitely going to have to try this. Yum.

Have fun with your smile meditation. :) I struggle to sit and meditate also. I love how you said you didn’t feel the pressure to quite your thoughts. That seems like a meditation that I could do!!

Have fun at your last market!

I’ve ran into little foxes before on my running trail — they are usually 10-15 feet away and they are always looking the other way. To be honest the animals are the least of my worries, I get more scared when I see a human being on my trail!

Looks divine. Potato in any form would be!
Did you trash the white vinegar you boiled the veggies in?
Just wondering if they’d be re-usable at all…?
(Sorry, I can be a cheapskate! ;) )

Those look to die for! I can’t help but imagine what your kitchen must have smelled like though. I remember when my mom used to clean out the coffee pot once a month with vineger and I’d have to find excuses to leave the house to keep from smelling it. Maybe I should try these and hopefully get over my disgust of the vinegar smell!

Btw, I made your carrot scuffins a few days ago (they were gone within likw 2.5 days ;) ), and they were so good! Definitely a recipe I’ll be saving and using over and over. :) Thank you!

I hate to cook but will do anything for a healthy salt and vinegar chip. These look like heaven on a baking sheet. I used to pound those chips like it was nobodies business. Nothing to brag about, I know. THanks for passing this along.

I’m not a big fan of potatoes, but when I eat them, they gotta be crispy! These salt and vinegar chips would certainly fit the bill! Thanks for the idea :)

I’ve done half marathons and other races, but never run a 5k. I’m doing one in October in Baltimore and it’s the first time I’m really running for speed (rather than to just finish). It’s a whole different experience to be training for a 5k.

And the chips look delish!!! Defnitely will have to try them.

I was never a big fan of S&V chips. But if there was a sour cream and onion version of those potatoes, I would be ALL over those. ;)

When you mentioned what you were going to do with those potatoes in a previous post, I clicked on the link and said, “oh, yeah”…. so I bought some potatoes the next time I went to the grocery store…

Now that I have seen your beautiful pictures, I’m so glad I did… I will be making those tonight! :D

I have to say, I tried a different spin on your smiling meditation. I had an early training run today. When the miles were getting harder, I would just start smiling and it actually made the pain tolerable :) I probably looked a little crazy, but who cares at that time of day! Plus the fact that I was focused on making it home to make those spelt carob blueberrie pancakes from yesterday! Super yummy!!

WHOA!!! What a coincidence, because I experimented with chip-making tonight, too :D
I’ll definitely try your recipe.
I spiralized 2 CSA potaters and made one batch S+V and one batch BBQ.
S+V was apple cider vinegar, smoked salt and pepper.
BBQ was smoked paprika, smoked salt, cumin, brown sugar and pepper.
Baked both on an olive-oiled pan in the oven.
Now my brain is humming with all of the cool flavor combinations there are to try! Post more if you make ’em!

Angela,
I love s & v and will have to try this soon-sounds amazing.

Ssorry to be scary,but I think it is important for you to know that an 18 yr old Ontario songwriter was KILLED by a coyote this year(Oct 2009) in Cape Breton while hiking a popular trail.The coyote attacked her and she was found by a couple who scared off the coyote and she was flown to Halifax yet tragically did not survive (you can hear her beautiful songs on her website http://www.taylormitchell.ca

A tragic tale but unfortunately one I feel you should be aware of. Between animals and people I suggest you don’t run alone in the area you live in. That is just my personal concern.
Take care and thank you for your sunny personality and very lovely blog-you are a talented and creative chef and I think you and your husband seem like such a sweet match.Wishing you both the very best and sorry for such a shocking email.

Angela,

I made these last night for along with “in a jiffy spelt veggie burger”. They turned out perfectly! Both myself and my husband love him of course he ate his with a big beef hamburger. I am trying to convert him. Ha ha!

I made a dip yesterday for my snack that you might want to check out. When I was making it I thought of you.
