Ingredients

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, unpeeled
  • 2 tbl canola oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste

Instructions

  • Cover a large baking sheet with foil. Spray with nonstick cooking spray. Scrub potatoes well. Cut potatoes lenghtwise into half inch sticks.
  • Place fries in a bowl of ice water for about 12 minutes. This will help rinse out the starch in the sweet potatoes. Remove potatoes from the water promptly so as not to let them get soggy. Dry well with paper towel.
  • Using a pastry brush, lightly brush all sides of the sweet potato sticks with the oil. Place them on the baking sheet in a single layer.
  • Bake at 375° for about 1 hour or until crisp and golden brown, turning 2 or 3 times during cooking. Sprinkle immediately with salt as they come out of the oven. 

Notes

*sprinkle 1/2 tsp of cinnamon over fries and toss
*1/2 tsp garlic powder and a tablespoon of Parmesan cheese and toss
*1/2 tsp chile powder and 1/2 teaspoon cumin
There are any number of spice additions you can add to your baked sweet potato fries. All you have to do is use your imagination.
