These taro chips are an easy, fun, & tasty snack, and duck fat makes them twice as delicious (yes, exactly 2x).
  • About two cups of fresh taro, peeled and sliced thin
  • ½ c duck fat
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsps chopped parsley or cilantro for garnish
  1. Peel & slice taro thinly (use a mandolin for even slices - unless you're a rebel and you don't mind nonconformity like me). Also not a bad idea to use gloves while handling/peeling taro, as the bark can cause itching (supposedly spraying your hands with vinegar after or possibly the taro itself reduces this).
  2. Heat up duck fat in a pot.
  3. When oil is medium hot (a drop of water sizzles), put 5-7 chips in the pot. Keep an eye on them and flip when brown.
  4. Remove when chips are browned on both sides and hit with salt immediately. Repeat until finished.
  5. Garnish for serving, or just munch away.
