"A really cool recipe from Easy Entertaining with Michael Chiarello. If you like fennel, do try this recipe:)"
2 (6 ounce) bags
plain potato chips
Fennel Spice Rub
Preheat oven to 350*F. Place the chips on a cookie sheet and put them in oven for 4 to 6 minutes.
When oil is visible on the chips and they start to get shiny, take them out of the oven, and sprinkle with a generous amount of the spice rub. Let them cool and serve.
To Make Fennel Spice Rub:
Place the fennel seeds, coriander seeds, and peppercorns in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Watch carefully, tossing frequently so the seeds will toast evenly. When light brown and fragrant, pour the seeds onto a plate to cool. They must be cool before grinding, or they will gum up the blades.
Pour the seeds into a blender(I use a small coffee grinder) and add the salt. Blend to a fine powder, shaking the blender occasionally to redistribute the seeds. Store in a tightly sealed glass jar in a cool, dry place, or freeze.
