Betty demonstrates how to make Sweet Potato Fries. This recipe was inspired by the recent trip that my husband, Rick, and I took to Acres of Land Winery. Rick ordered Sweet Potato Fries to go with his Crab Cake Sandwich. These are sweet potato strips that are deep-fried in oil, and then drained and sprinkled with salt and sugar. They are delicious! If you are not comfortable deep-frying with oil, please do not try this recipe.

Sweet Potato Fries

raw sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into strips like French fry potatoes. (I used a red variety, but you may also use a white variety.)
peanut oil for deep-frying (You may use another oil, if you prefer.)
a sprinkling of salt
a sprinkling of sugar

Heat about 1 inch of peanut oil to 350 degrees in a pot over medium heat. With a long, slotted utensil, ease a batch of sweet potato strips into the hot oil. Move the potatoes around in the oil with the utensil as they cook. You may need to adjust the heat throughout the cooking process, because you may have several batches. You will be able to tell when the sweet potatoes are done. If you are not sure, just take one out and let it cool a bit, and then take a bite. It should be tender all the way through. Use a slotted utensil to remove the first batch to a rack or to a tray covered with paper towels. Immediately sprinkle the Sweet Potato Fries with salt, and then with sugar. Repeat this process for as many batches as you have. When you have finished deep-frying, draining, and seasoning the sweet potatoes, move them to a nice serving plate, and serve while hot! These are scrumptious and are a nice alternative to regular French fries as a side dish. I hope you enjoy these Sweet Potato Fries! –Betty

    you should cover them with starch so they won’t get soggy

  2. Virginia Wolf says:

    This is a wonderful video. Thank you for sharing it. I made some today and
    they were great plain or with mustard:)

  3. Movie Maker says:

    We make these all the time with olive oil (regular, not extra virgin
    because it has a higher smoking temperature) and it tastes great WITHOUT
    adding salt or sugar. You can also use canola oil. Both olive and canola
    oils are very healthy for deep frying. Just don’t use lard or shortening.

      +real natural People loved fried foods. Also, depending on who you ask, it
      might not be unhealthy. But go ahead and laugh.

  8. Carol Napolitano says:

    Betty, your always worrying about people being safe, so sweet. Can you
    leave off the sugar? Some people can’t eat to much sugar. These can be
    done in the oven?

    • Betty's Kitchen says:

      +Carol Napolitano You may leave off the sugar, sure, and you may do them in
      the oven although the texture will probably not please you quite as much. I
      would sprinkle a little salt on either way.

  18. Mike Runko says:

    betty. your smoking hot.

  19. Agutine Zabate says:

    nice

  20. Betty's Kitchen says:

    You don’t have to boil the sweet potatoes first; it just insures that they
    will not be crunchy at all inside. I think coarse salt sprinkled over the
    top looks great; You can choose to sprinkle with sugar, instead. Also, sour
    cream mixed with brown sugar makes a good dipping sauce. –Betty 🙂
