Vegetable oil for the fryer

Place sweet potato chips in ice water for about 10 minutes.
If using peanut oil, stir it into rest of the oil you will be using to fry the chips. Preheat deep fryer, bringing the oil to 350°F (176°C).
Remove sweet potato chips from water and pat dry completely with paper towels. Slowly lower chips into hot oil, ten or so at a time, and allow to fry for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the edges of the chips are golden-brown.
Remove from oil and allow to drain on a plate lined with a paper towel. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, tossing together well. Great served with a simple homemade ketchup or your sauce of choice.
You don't need a deep fryer for this recipe -- you can easily use a Dutch oven or other deep, heavy vessel filled with 4- to 6-inches of oil. To make sure your oil is the right temperature, you'll need a thermometer to test the oil temperature. Nutritional analysis does not include oil for frying.
