with kitchen shears or a knife. Place the wedges on an ungreased
baking sheet and toast in a 350F oven for 10 to 12 minutes or till
dry and crisp. You'll find they're sturdy for dipping, there's no
messy cleanup, and the chips are lower in calories than those you buy
in the store.

Food Tips of the Week

Over and above their most other great health properties, the vitamins and nutrients in these are believed by scientists to reduce the risk of cancer.
