    Episode 2: Sweet Freedom Fries


    Ari Sillman, a Weinberg sophomore who has spent two summers working as a line cook at a French restaurant in the Berkshires in Massachusetts, shows you how make sweet potato fries from scratch.

    What you'll need:
    • A sweet potato
    • Olive oil
    • Salt and pepper
    • A frying pan
    • A baking sheet

    Serves: 2

    Peel an average sized sweet potato and cut off both ends. Cut the sweet potato in half and then proceed to cut each half lengthwise into 1/2 inch wide sticks. Coat fries in olive oil, salt and pepper then lay them out on a baking sheet and put into an oven at 350 degrees. Once the fries can pe pierced easily with a fork, remove them. Take a pan and fill it with enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan with about a 1/4 of an inch of oil. Turn the stove on to high and fry each fry until browned (approx 2-3 minutes). Remove from pan. Pat down with paper towel to remove the excess oil and proceed to eat.
