OK I said i’d post it here so I will as well as on my Indigo Log my gf’s sweet potato fries recipe. I will be enjoying these at my BBQ
The foot notes are her little verbal details
candybarre’s sweet potato fries:
about a pound of sweet potatoes peeled and sliced.
- I really don’t weigh them I just grab 2 or 3. But I’d guess it’ about a pound.
6 tablespoons of coconut oil
1 teaspoon of salt + water to chill the potatoes in prior to cooking
- You can use table salt but I prefer to have a more subtle salt taste involved so I use rock or sea salt
salt/cinnamon/ginger to taste
Cut the potatoes into 1/2" slices and then cut lengthways into thin fries.
Place the potatoes in large bowl and cover them with water and 1 tsp table salt. Chill for 1 hour.
Drain and dry the potatoes
Heat the coconut oil in a large saucepan until really hot and sizzling.
Fry the potatoes in batches until lightly browned.
Remove and place on a paper towel-lined platter.
*I have read in other recipes that if you like crispier fries you can add the fries in batches again for 2 - 4 minutes. I can not vouch for this because I don’t do it. At most if I think the first batch is cooling off I will put them back in with the last batch for a minute to reheat them.
Remove and place on paper towel to drain.
Sprinkle with salt, cinnamon, and ginger
- I usually just do the cinnamon and ginger. If you need an exact measure I’d say a 1/4 teaspoon of each. And I use ginger powder, though I may experiment with finely crushed crystals later.
Serve immediately and enjoy
