These are exciting, crunchy, and SO tasty. I am not sure I have seen an easier recipe, the hardest part is just watching them float in the cold salted water for an hour. Hmmm....I think these are even better the white potato chips~and I'll surmise that it has to do with their little solid bodies. I was thinking I would add a dash of color, a bit of this or that, but no need! Perfect with flecks of a larger course salt, and that's it! Thanks so much, Ed&Theresa! See ya in the Caribbean!
