• For the chips, slice the potatoes paper-thin into a bowl of cold water. Drain and rinse, then refill the bowl with water. Add the salt and potatoes. Let stand for 30 minutes. Drain, rinse and drain again.
• Heat oil in a deep-fryer to 365 degrees. Fry the potatoes in small batches until golden. Remove them immediately as they turn golden. Drain on paper towels. Season.
