Homemade Sweet Potato Fries


Homemade Sweet Potato Fries


1 large sweet potato (about 1 pound)

Vegetable oil

Salt to taste


Peel the sweet potato, if desired. Cut into ½” strips.

Heat 1” oil in a heavy skillet on medium until a drop of water sizzles when dropped into it (5-10 minutes).

Carefully put sweet potato strips in hot oil and fry until golden brown (7-10 minutes), cooking in batches so as not to crowd potatoes. Remove from oil with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels or rack. Salt to taste while still hot.

Serve with honey mustard dip, if desired.
