As I was getting ready to test some burger creations for my #BurgerMonth posts, the boys asked about fries. What? "Mom, you need to make fries to go with the burgers." Of course...
Turns out that I didn't have any potatoes in my vegetable bin, but I did have Murasaki sweet potatoes. Have you ever had a Murasaki? It's a purple-skinned Japanese sweet potato with pale creamy-colored flesh. And what we love about it is its distinctive nutty flavor...and the fact that it stays firm when cooked. So, it's perfect for fries.
- 4 to 5 Murasaki sweet potatoes, scrubbed and dried
- olive oil
- freshly ground salt
- freshly ground pepper
