How To Make Crispy Sweet Potato Fries
These crispy sweet potato fries have a natural sweetness so to balance it out, we are using a generous amount of salt and make it crispier with cornstarch.
Wash and peel your sweet potatoes. Cut into ¼ inch thick fries and rinse the potatoes for about 10-15 seconds under cold water then dry with paper towels or a clean dish cloth you don’t mind turning slightly orange.
Mix the cornstarch with the water to make a slurry in a large bowl or large ziploc bag, add sweet potatoes and toss to coat.
Heat your oil in your pot to 350 degrees F and add the fries 1 at a time so will not stick together.
Toss the potatoes in the slurry again to prevent the cornstarch from settling.
Fry for 1 to 2 minutes and drain on a brown paper bag.
Once all the fries are done with their first dip in the oil, start the second round of frying, then fry them the second time for an additional 2 minutes, until the fries are browned and crispy.
