Oven-Roasted Sweet Potato Fries

Wait ‘til you see how easy it is to make these healthy, sweet fries. Roasting vegetables brings out their natural sugars so they are even sweeter than the fried ones. If you use a convection oven, the fries will brown faster. - Jenny Jones

    Thanks Susie and Jenny,

    I was about to make some sweet potato fries only to find out that I will not be making sweet potato fries but “yams.” I always wondered why I did not like orange french fries.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!

      What we call yams, the ones with the dark flesh, are too soft to make fries. You have to use the light-flesh sweet potato but I think you already figured that out.

    Thanks guys,

    I was about to have some sweet potato fries only to realize I have yams.

    Hi Jenny, I live in the UK and our sweet potatoes have a dark brown skin and orange flesh so I’m not sure they are the same sweet potatoes you have over there ? Love your recipes by the way.
