Soon after I started using my Paderno vegetable slicer to cut sweet potatoes into curls, I bought an oven crisper pan. This thing is great. Instead of drenching the slices in hot oil to fry them, I just put them in a bowl, add a bit of salt and olive oil and stir until the slices are lightly coated.
The capacity seems to be two medium size sweeties. I put the pan in the oven at 400F and let them bake for about 10 minutes, then flipped them with a spatula every five minutes until they looked done.
The slices shrink a lot, because the water gets baked out. The photo above shows what two sweet potatoes look like after baking. My wife and I ate all of them so I made another batch from two more sweeties. We ate that, too. We could have gone for thirds, but became concerned that our skin would turn orange.
Clean up is easy — wipe it with a moist paper towel.

This enameled cast iron dutch oven should last longer than we do. I use a dutch oven for baking sourdough bread and cooking with my sous vide circulator.

I’ve been using these silicone dish scrubbers for about a year. They are far less gross than sponges. All the tales of sponge-nastiness got to me last year. I decided that some silicone scrubbers were worth trying out, and a small expense if they did not work out. These silicone scrubbers work fantastically! Pictured are […]
With the gains real estate has made over stocks in the past 25 years, it’s easy to see why the rich constantly use it to expand their wealth. What’s slightly less obvious is why only the rich seem to ever break into real estate investment. There are a lot of reasons, but a couple of […]
