Sweet Potato Chips

I am always looking for ways to preserve food and make it delicious. I was given a bag of huge sweet potatoes and decided to dry them. My first attempt was not that great to eat as a snack, so a friend suggested cinnamon and brown sugar - yum!


  • 3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced into thin circles
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. cinnamon
  • a pinch of sea salt


Put cinnamon, sugar, and salt into a bag and shake up potatoes in small batches. Place on the screen of your food dryer. Turn it on and dry until crispy, about 12 hours.

Store in a glass jar. They will keep for at least a year if you can manage not to eat them.

Servings: 2
Prep Time: 30 Minutes
Cooking Time: 12 Hours
