Salt & Vinegar Potato Chips

Soaking potato slices in apple cider vinegar adds a light acidic note to these purple potato chips without the chemical aftertaste you often get from store-bought varieties. If you like a stronger acidic punch, simply soak them longer.

  • 14 oz 
purple or Russet 
potatoes, scrubbed 
and cut into 1/16-inch 
slices with a mandoline
  • 1 cup 
apple cider vinegar, 
or as needed
  • 2 tbsp 
olive oil
  • 1½ tsp 
sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. In a bowl, submerge potato slices in vinegar. Soak for 15 to 30 minutes; drain and wipe out bowl. (NOTE: Soaking for 15 minutes yields a mild vinegar flavor, if you prefer a bigger acidic punch, soak for 30 minutes.)
  3. Lay slices flat on paper towel, pat dry. Transfer to bowl; toss slices with oil and salt. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper and lay potato slices flat, ensuring they are not overlapping.
  4. Bake for 8 minutes, flip over, and bake for 3 to 5 minutes more, until chips are crispy and edges are slightly browned. Transfer chips to racks to cool. Arrange remaining potato slices on sheets and repeat baking process.
