Sunchoke Chips

4 medium sunchokes

fine salt to taste

frying oil (we prefer rice bran oil for frying, but any neutral vegetable oil will work)

Thinly slice sunchokes on mandolin 1/16-inch thick. Heat oil to 350 degrees and drop slices into fryer in batches. Fry to golden or until chips are no longer bubbling. Strain onto a paper towel, season with salt. Store in an airtight container for up to two days.
