Directions

  1. Heat oil to 350 degrees in a 1-gallon heavy-bottomed pot.
  2. Drain sweet potato and pat dry with paper towels. Slice each very thin and cut into fine strips and place in very cold water.
  3. Carefully drop a small handful of sweet potato strings in the fryer and allow to crisp and turn golden brown. Remove with a small strainer and place on clean paper towels to absorb the excess oil.
  4. Serve immediately.
