It is so easy for any of us to go to the grocery store and pick up a bag of tater tots, french fries, or sweet potato fries for that matter. We have gotten used to everything being so convenient but at what cost to our health? You can make your own unprocessed foods even your faves with minimal effort. Actually the most difficult part of making these sweet potato fries was peeling them which took about 5 minutes to peel about 5….isn’t your health worth that small investment of time? We all know eating french fries from your local fast food restaurant is not a wise decision – see this blog article.
I absolutely love sweet potato fries! I can almost hear me sing…..”Oh how I love thee….let me count the ways”….now sweet potato fries do not have to bring on the guilt and they are delicious and local in terms that I bought them in our home state of North Carolina. Every year when we go up to the mountains my husband “The Viking in My Life” load up on what I call our staples….apples, beans, squash, pumpkins, and yes the versatile sweet potato!
One of the best investments…..is one of my tools of the trade is this old fashioned potato fry slicer which my husband bargain hunted for us at one of his favorite treasure shops. He purchased our slicer for all of $5.00 a booth around the corner had the same exact slicer for $20.00. You do have to use your strength to use this gadget but you don’t need electricity. You can also slice up regular fries you could even try other produce to see if it will work with one of these slicers.
If you already make a lot of your staples unprocessed please share some of your favorites. We have always eaten very few frozen types of food but I have made exceptions for pizza and sweet potato fries but no more!
Wishing you a lovely Super Bowl Sunday!
