Fries not Fried, or are they?
"Rarely did I eat a french fry when I was young. It wasn't that I didn't love them, I just rarely ate out, almost never went to fast food joints and my mom didn't get them to bake in the oven. I think a crispy outside, creamy inside, lightly salted, medium-thickness fry is a perfect, delicious, happy plate of food. Now, in the spirit of being able eat more fries, I have to bake them. This week, to go with grilled chicken, I made perfect, crispy, fooled-you-it-isn't-fried, baked sweet potato fries. Now this does take some paying attention to your oven and I realize it's getting warm outdoors and turning on an oven might not be appealing. This might change your mind. I used frozen sweet potatoes. Spray foil and put a cookie sheet in a pre-heating oven. Once to temperature, let the pan heat in the oven for 5-6 minutes. Add fries and bake 8-10 minutes. Once fries are in the oven, mix GO-On Tap blood orange oo, a little sugar, a little salt and cinnamon. 10 minutes in, open oven and drizzle the oo mix over fries. Repeat this another time or two and flip fries in process. This seriously took me by great surprise. What I got was an incredibly fried texture, creamy inside, sweetness, saltiness and the urge to take the pan and hide. No sharing. My mouth is watering at the thought of more possibilities. As always, make this your own. Pour. Savor. Enjoy."
