Recipe for glass potato chips


  • 6 potatoes (Yukon Gold recommended)
  • Salt
  • Oil
  • 1 l boiling water
  • 50 g potato starch


  • First wash the potatoes and make a small cut on the top.
  • In a bowl, mix them with oil and salt, and bake them for 20 minutes.
  • When you take them out of the oven, put the hot potatoes in a bowl of boiling water. Let them stand at room temperature for 2-3 hours.
  • Strain the liquid and store in a container in the freezer for another 4-5 hours.
  • Then, in a saucepan, put the potato starch together with the potato broth and stir over medium heat until it is a viscous liquid.
  • On a baking tray lined with paper, distribute sticks of the dough and bake at 180 ºC to dehydrate, about 4 hours or until there is no liquid left.
  • Once dry, fry the chips until crispy.
