PATRICK EVANS-HYLTON'S FIRE & NICE SWEET POTATO CHIPS

Ingredients

Peanut oil or vegetable oil
1 tablespoon coarse salt
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 -4 large sweet potatoes, washed (and optionally, peeled)

Method

In a large, heavy saucepan heat two inches of oil to 325F. Combine salt, sugar and pepper. Using a mandoline, food processor or by hand, thinly slice potatoes - no thicker than 1/8-inches thick. Fry chips in small patches, careful not to overcrowd the saucepan, and turning chips once; total time for each batch is approximately three minutes. Chips should be golden. Allow oil to come back to 325F temperature between batches. Transfer cooked patches on a paper or dish towel-lined baking sheet and, while still warm, place in a bowl, coat with a sprinkling spices and toss to cover. 
Repeat until potatoes and spices are used.
