1large sweet potatowashed and dried
olive oila splash
Cut sweet potatoes into small strips with even thickness (slightly smaller than the size of fast food fries. You can peel them if you want but I don't)
Place sweet potatoes in cold water and let soak for at least an hour.
Remove from water and dry completely with paper towels.
Preheat oven to 425 F.
Place cornstarch in a plastic bag and then dump in the dried sweet potatoes.
Toss to very lightly coat the sweet potatoes.
Place sweet potatoes in a bowl and add a few drops of olive oil (just enough to very lightly coat sweet potatoes.
Line a pan with parchment paper.
Place sweet potatoes on the pan, but do not let them touch. (only place 1 pan at a time in the oven. Al off mine fit on one pan)
Bake on top rack for 10- 15 minutes. Flip and bake for another 10-15 minutes. (baking time may vary depending on the thickness of your potatoes)
Switch the oven to a low broil and broil each side for 1 minute (may need more or less time depending on your oven. Be sure to watch them the entire time they are broiling as they can burn quick.)
When fries come out of the oven let them sit on the hot pan and they will crisp up a bit more.
Sprinkle with salt and then toss with the spice mixture when ready to serve. (Be sure that you are ready to serve immediately after tossing them with the spice mixture. The brown sugar eventually melts and becomes sticky, making the fries less crisp. I LOVE it though)
