Sweet Potato Fries





This week has been the first week in a long while where I just really didn't want to get our of bed. It's been dark, it's been freezing and it's rained. Hard. Yup, this week Autumn arrived.
So I feel a bit of seasonal food is needed. Pumpkins, butternut Squash, carrots, hot chocolates (tee hee hee). Have a look at the beautiful Sweet Potato Fries I lovingly made yesterday. They are super easy, apparently better for you than regular chips and yummy. 
FACT OF THE DAY: Sweet potatoes are those things Americans call Yams. Mind blown. 
 









Need: 
 3/4 sweet potatoes
 a dashing of oil
 table saly
 ground pepper

Wash and peel those 'tatas. I usually make a horrific mess here, Jamie Oliver would curse if he saw my peeling methods. Now you are goin to need to find a sharp cutting implemement and very carefully chop into chip shapes. Place on a baking tray and toss them in some oil, sprinkle with salt and a little pepper.
Pop them in the oven at a medium heat for about 20 minutes, tossing them from time to time. Or bake until golden, or as crispy as you want! 
Yummy.

Do you have any good autumnal recipes? Please share!

  2. I did not know that yams and potatoes are the same thing! Mind blown.


    I love LOVE sweet potatoes. We had them last night, with olive oil and paprika. Nom nom nom. Although, I don't peal mine, because I'm lazy.

  3. Mmmmm sweet potatoes :) And hey, some of us Americans properly call them sweet potatoes! haha :) I don't know where "Yams" came from...but they're often canned whereas the raw sweet potatoes are called just that - sweet potatoes. I adore sweet potatoes - tater tots (mmm), "chips" , even just baked with a bit of chili powder, black beans, and salsa!
