Sweet Potato Oven Fries

Here it is, the sweet potato recipe I promised a couple of weeks ago!  Thanks for your patience, my dears.

This is adapted from Vegetables Every Day, by Jack Bishop.

3 sweet potatoes
oil of choice
spices (I like cardamom, or cracked black pepper with coriander)
  1. Put a large, rimmed cookie sheet in the oven.  Preheat to 425 degrees.
  2. Slice the sweet potatoes into 1/2" wedges.  Toss them with oil, good salt, and your seasonings of choice.
  3. When the cookie sheet is hot, brush a little additional oil on the pan.
  4. Add the sweet potato wedges carefully, in one layer, to the hot pan.  You want them to roast, not steam, so make sure that there is a little bit of space around each wedge. 
  5. Bake, without turning or stirring, until bottom of each wedge is well browned.  Turn carefully to avoid smashing the wedges.  Bake until evenly browned and crisp.  Adjust seasonings and dig in!
