In this video, 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.
