Sweet potato fries
Cut orange-fleshed sweet potatoes (often mislabeled “yams”) into ½-in.-thick sticks and boil in water until tender-crisp,
about 5 minutes. Drain and pat dry. Heat 2 to 3 in. vegetable oil in a large saucepan until oil registers 350° on a deep-fry
thermometer. Fry in batches until golden and crisp, about 4 minutes.
