In a large heavy saucepan or deep-fat fryer, heat 4 to 5 inches of vegetable oil to 360 degrees. Rub the potato strips with the salt. Fry the potatoes, in several batches to prevent overcrowding and sticking, for 2 to 3 minutes, until cooked through but not colored. Be sure to return the oil to 360 degrees before cooking the next batch, or the potatoes will absorb too much oil and be greasy. Set the potatoes aside on paper towels until you have finished cooking all of them, then increase the temperature of the oil to 390 degrees. Refry the potatoes, again in batches. This time they will take very little time to become crisp, golden-brown, and puffy (keep the first batches warm in a low oven while you finish frying, and again be sure to return the oil to 390 degrees for the subsequent batches). Remove with a slotted spoon to drain briefly on paper towels. Serve while hot. This recipe yields 4 to 6 servings.

sgrishka 4 years agoThese Sweet Potato Fries were simply delicious. We served them at our family steak fry. Their bright orange color and taste made for an unusual side dish that was a real crowd-pleaser. The recipe was very easy to follow and the double frying produced perfect, crisp fries...well worth the extra trouble. We did adjust the recipe slightly, we soaked the cut fries in ice water for about 30 minutes then drained and thoroughly dried them with kitchen towels prior to salting and frying them. (Soaking reduces the starch content which helps keep the fries from over browning or sticking together while cooking.) The fries were great on their own but we also used a couple spice blends to season several batches after frying. For a sweet spice blend we combined 2 tbsp. sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon together with a pinch of salt and sprinkle it over the fries. For a spiced-up spice blend we combined 1 tsp. kosher salt, 1 tsp. garlic salt, 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper, 1/4 tsp. chili powder, 1/4 tsp. freshly-ground black pepper, 1/2 tsp. paprika, 1/4 tsp. ground dried thyme and 1/4 tsp. ground dried oregano together and sprinkle it over the fries.
