- 1 each sweet potato, peeled, sliced thin, cut fine strips, place in cold water
- 1 quart canola oil, for frying
Heat oil to 350º F in a 1 gallon heavy bottom pot.
Drain sweet potato and pat dry with paper towels.
Carefully drop a small handful of sweet potato strings in the fryer and allow to crisp and turn golden brown. Remove with a strainer and place on clean paper towels to absorb excess oil.
