All over Pinterest I've seen the legend of the glass potato chip. It looks like a glittering shard of glass with the supposed full flavour and crunch of a potato chip. Be aware: this recipe requires a lot of time and patience.
Apparently the "glass chip" was originally created by chef Hamid Salimian who, at the time, worked in Diva at the Met in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The chips were part of an amuse bouche, where he tops a dab of sour cream with chopped chives and a combination of the glass potatoes and truffle. Sounds interesting, but can it be recreated as easily as people on Pinterest make it appear? Let's find out!!
What You Need
The ingredients list for making the glass chips is fairly small:
Making Potato Stock
Make a Potato Gel
Instructable contributor Imnopeas claims to have "improved the recipe" simply by adding the gel to a squeeze bottle to squirt out perfect potato chip shapes. This same person also stated in the beginning of the instructional post that "potato chips are boring". Excuse me, what?. Madness! Do what feels right. I had tons of gel, so I used both methods. I did one sheet with oblong goo, and one with total goo coverage.
