Spicy Sweet Potato Pommes Frites with Raspberry Preserves

November 15, 2009

Author Notes:

I love french fries and sweet potato fries are the best. Instead of ketchup I decided a sweet raspberry preserve makes this snack the perfect combination of spicy, salty, and sweet.


Serves: 2


  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon chile powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 tablespoon flour

  1. Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside. Peel the sweet potato and slice to desired thickness and size.

  4. Serve with your favorite raspberry preserves. Enjoy!
