#78 :: Sweet Potato Fries

Recently I bought a bag of sweet potatoes. We're eating a lot of vegetables lately (potatoes included) and I just wanted to try something a little different. We've done Sweet Potato Chips, which turned out half and half - half came out perfect, the other half burned beyond recognition! Now we're trying Sweet Potato Fries. I still have a few sweet potatoes left too....maybe next time mashed?


  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 4 to 6 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch batons
  • Salt, to taste
  • Essence, to taste, recipe follows


Heat the vegetable oil in a very large, deep pot or heat an electric fryer to 360 degrees F. Fry the sweet potatoes, in batches, until golden brown, about 8 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with salt and Essence, to taste, and serve hot.

Makes 4-6 servings
