Sweet Potato Chips

My husband never cared for sweet potatoes until he married me. I tell him it must be my cooking! He can't resist dipping into a bowl of these crunchy chips. They're a nice change from regular potato chips.—Janelle Lee, Appleton, Wisconsin.

    I found that a mandelin works the best, but be carefull it is really sharp. You can also bake the potato for 20 to 30 minutes so they are no so hard and they slice easier. Hope this helps.PJ.

    The first thought through my mind was to use a Mandoline. That's what I'm going to try.

    Do you have any suggestions regarding how to thinly slice sweet potatoes? I find them so fiberous as to be difficult to slice.
