Man Versus Microwave

 

I use our microwave to boil water, melt chocolate, and prepare oatmeal.

Cooking Light did a piece on Microwave Magic this month.

I skimmed through the tutorial.

Cook everything from Asparagus Risotto to Meatloaf.

Hmmm--Sweet Potato Chips?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Without hesitation I produced two sweet potatoes (from the pantry) and followed the instructions.

Skipping all the gourmet stuff on rosemary pepper salt....

I wanted to see if I could master the technique-

Sweet Potatoes.

When I smell sweet potatoes baking--whole, wedges, slices, strips or rounds I get all wrapped up!

I adore them.

The romance was held off when I realized I didn't know how many watts my Smart Sharp could produce.

Would it take 4 minutes per 1/4 potato of thin slices or up to 20-50 percent more?

Honestly, it became a science experiment.

A craft too.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I sprayed the parchment with coconut oil and

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

cut them into uniform slices with help from a scary machine.

in the microwave.

 

 

 

 

 

 

b

I googled my watts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My sweet potato chips after the initial 4 minutes and 30 second increments= 10 minutes.

THEN

 

 

 

 

 

 

I got out the big copper gun.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I loaded it with the second potato sliced with a knife.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

425 degrees 20 minutes.

MP arrived.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sweet Potatoes two ways.  You decide!
