Mmmhhhmhmmmm girl, today I have been C-to the OOKING.
Today, I made (and then ate) three batches of Sweet Potato cinnamon chilli crisps. You heard me.
this is batch number three omnomn om
I am snacking on these beauties now and I can tell you that these are the single best recipe for sweet potatoes in existence. I made them with cinnamon sugar, but if you wanted them savoury you could use a little salt and just use ground cinnamon instead
- one or two sweet potatoes (depending on how much you want to make)
- cinnamon sugar (or ground cinnamon)
- chilli flakes
first, slice the sweet potatoes. You’ll need to slice them really really really thin. The thinner they are, the crispier they will be. If you want them a little thicker that’s fine, but they’ll need a little more cooking to get to a good level of crispiness.
See that? Not quite thin enough for me.
this is batch number 1 after a few minutes in the oven
Next, sprinkle all of your spices over the slices (Poetry in making). Just do as much as you want,
my family the philistines I live with hate cinnamon so I went easy on the cinnamon I ate all the crisps before they got home.
Once you’re done sprinkling put them in the oven at a fairly low heat and go and do your nails. Do check them every so often as batch number two burnt. Completely. I still ate them, but they were too crispy even for me. Or Astro.
Once most of the water’s left them, they should be really crispy but they may still be a bit wet on the side facing the try. Turn them over if this happens and let them stay in there for a little and THEN YOU ARE READY TO EAT THOSE TASTY LITTLE DEVILS. Do it. Do it now, you won’t regret this: I promise. If you buy one sweet potato in the next year, use it for this because you will never look back. Mmmmm. I might just nip into town and buy some more sweet potatoes….
Her leaves are facing the sun now, and there’s a little teeny baby one coming through just at the base of the other three. I think that she will be ready for a bigger pot fairly soon so I might put her outside in the spring.
OOH UPDATE, mum just got back from work with guess what? Sweet potatoes. I am off to make more crisps. LOVE YOU ALL xxx
