Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 1 medium acorn squash (about 2 pounds / 1 kilogram), very firm

  • oil, for frying

  • salt, to taste

Directions

Peel the Squash

1.

Peel acorn squash with a very sharp potato peeler and cut away the peel from between the ridges with a small paring knife.  Cut squash in half and discard pulp and seeds.

2.

Peel squash into thin strips using the peeler.  Pat strips dry with paper towel.

Notes:

The firmer the squash, the crisp­ier the chips.  Chips made from firm acorn squash are the closest thing in taste and texture to po­tato chips.

Fry the Chips

1.

In a deep, heavy-bottomed skillet or large frying pan, pour in oil to a depth of 1 inch.  Heat to medium-high temperature, 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius) on a deep-fry thermometer.  (If you don’t have a thermometer, heat oil until it shimmers.)

2.

Carefully place squash strips flat into the oil without overlapping.  Working quickly, fry chips on medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes, or until chips begin to brown lightly.

3.

Remove chips immediately from skillet using a strainer spatula or deep-fry skimmer.  Drain on a large plate lined with paper towels.

4.

Sprinkle lightly with salt and enjoy!

Tips:

These chips will stay crispy for a few days in the refrigerator, loosely covered.  To reheat, spread in a single layer on a foil-lined baking sheet.  Reheat uncovered at 375˚F (190°C) for 8 to 10 minutes.
