  • Prep Time: 1440
  • Cook Time: 3
  • Total Time: 24 hours 3 minutes


  • 2 cups malt or white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt, divided
  • 2 large russet potatoes (about 2 1/4 lb.)
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Peanut oil


  1. Combine vinegar, sugar, 1 Tbsp. salt, and 1 cup water in a medium-size glass bowl, stirring until sugar dissolves. Cut potatoes into thin slices, using a mandoline or sharp knife. (Cut them as thin as you can.)
  2. Stir potatoes into vinegar mixture; chill 24 hours.
  3. Stir together rosemary, pepper, and remaining 1 Tbsp. salt in a small jar. Drain potatoes; gently pat dry with paper towels.
  4. Pour oil to depth of 3 inches into a large Dutch oven; heat to 340°. Fry potatoes, in batches, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels, and immediately sprinkle with rosemary mixture. Serve warm, or cool completely (about 10 minutes).


  • In addition to the total time, allow 24 hours for brining.
  • Make Ahead: Fry chips up to 1 day ahead, let cool, and store in an airtight container. Re-crisp and warm the chips on a jelly-roll pan in a 300° oven for 20 to 25 minutes.
