How To Make Sweet Potato Fries

This fun variation is a new twist on an old favorite. Sweet potatoes offer more nutrients like vitamin A, beta-carotene and potassium. Sweet potato fries can be prepared just like ordinary french fries, either fried or baked. Lightly coat the cut fries in olive oil and dust them with cornstarch to achieve a delightfully crisp crust. Spread the fries evenly across the baking sheet so they cook evenly. If you prefer less crispness, omit the cornstarch from your recipe. Try dusting your sweet potato fries with cinnamon and sugar for a sweet and satisfying treat. The flavor combination is perfect; just steer clear of the ketchup with those ones. If you prefer more of a savory snack, try seasoning your fries with cumin or paprika. In this video, Chef Mark will teach you how to cook the perfect sweet potato fries in a few simple steps.  For more great cooking demonstration videos, subscribe to the LearnToCookOnline YouTube channel.
