Huatang Yam Chips

Another vegetable based chip. This time, it’s yam. A note here. These chips are made of Chinese yam, also known as Chinese potato or Nagaimo (Japanese name). It’s not the purple yam that is more common in tropical countries.

Ok, science lesson done. Let’s taste.

It’s cut into small flat squares that are slightly curved or bent. The texture is light and crispy, mainly because it’s rather thin. The taste is from a combination of spices and it’s pleasant. Not too salty. Chinese yam by itself does not have a strong taste, so other than the spices, there’s not much of the yam taste.

I bought this from Hainan, China.
