Thin chips made from potatoes, parsnips or sweet potatoes make a tasty garnish or snack. Here's how to thinly slice them before baking or deep-frying.
Method 1: Use a sharp knife to trim the base of the potato. This helps to keep it stable on the work surface. Use the knife to thinly slice.
Method 2: Run a vegetable peeler down the length of the parsnip from root to tip to thinly slice. This also works well for carrots.
Method 3: Use a mandolin to cut vegies, such as sweet potato, into thin slices. Hold the mandolin over a bowl to catch the slices.
