Sweet Potato Fries

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks, wedges or chunky “French Fry” slices
  • 1 1/2  Tablespoons canola oil or olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper or 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 Tablespoons honey or pure maple syrup, divided
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Peel and cut up potatoes. In a plastic ziploc bag, combine the cut sweet potatoes, oil, cumin, salt, and cayenne pepper or chili powder. Seal the bag and shake until the potatoes are evenly coated with the oil and spices. Then add 1 Tablespoon honey or maple syrup to the bag and coat potatoes evenly. Spread the  potatoes out in a single layer on a large baking or cookie sheet (if you want easy clean-up, line your baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper).  Bake on the middle shelf of your oven for 30 minutes or until the potato edges are crisp and potatoes are cooked through (halfway through baking time, turn the fries over using a large spoon so the potatoes will bake more evenly). When potatoes are done, while still warm, coat the potatoes evenly with an additional 1 Tablespoon honey or maple syrup (you can place the potatoes in a bowl and toss them with a large spoon to do this). Then serve immediately.
