Another amazing Instructable that will teach you not only how to make your own potato chips, but how to make them look like a piece of semi-frosted glass.

Behold: The Edible Glass Potato Chip

This chip is stunning. It's see-through like no other food. It has the distinct crunch and flavor of a potato chip, but in an unexpected space-age form.

This is molecular gastronomy brought home. It involves potato stock, potato starch, and a slow-dried gel. The first couple of steps are a breeze, but I warn you in advance: you must have patience to bring these to fruition. The last few steps require that you dehydrate the gel and then deep fry the chips in oil (like the real ones). But the result is oh-so-worth-it (every calorie, too).
