Sweet Potato Fries

Last Fall, my girlfriends and I took a trip to Whistler, B.C.  One of my favorite memories from that trip was the Yam Fries we had at Ric’s Grill.  The waitress brought them out and set them in the middle of the table and my friends, Kathy and Tracy and I just stared at them.  They were glorious.  They also came with a wonderful chipotle’ aioli sauce.  Here is my version:

Ingredients:  Sweet Potato Fries

2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled

Canola oil for frying

Salt and pepper

Directions:  Sweet Potato Fries

Place enough of the oil in a fry pan or deep fryer to cover potatoes.  Heat the oil to about 325 degrees.  Meanwhile, cut potatoes into fries lengthwise.  Make them all the same size so they cook evenly.  Carefully add the potatoes to the oil and fry for about 8 minutes, turning if necessary.  Turn off heat and scoop out potatoes with a heat proof utensil onto a tray lined with paper towels.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Let cool slightly and enjoy.  For crispier fries, you can cook them longer in the fryer.

Ingredients:  Chipotle Aioli

1 C. mayonnaise

1/4 C. Dijon mustard

2 T. white wine vinegar

1 T. canned chipotles, minced

Directions:  Chipotle Aioli

Mix all the above ingredients together well and serve with sweet potato fries.
