Anyone ever make french or sweet potato fries in coconut oil?
Thinking of doing that tonight but didn't know how they'd taste. Thanks.
Not actual 'fries' ... but I have done sort of twice baked sweet potato slices brushed in coconut oil and they were absolutely divine!
First I baked the sweet potatoes int the oven which helps concentrate their flavor...
Then cooled, peeled, and sliced them about, 1/4 - 3/8 inch
Layed them out on a lined baking sheet, brushed both sides with EVCO... and re-baked at 450 until bubbling and getting just crips at the edges. Maybe turned the broiler on to hit the tops with some color... watch closely.(I have no idea how long.)
They were addictively delicious. Very sweet, slightly coconutty... the double baking concentrated the sugars.
Maybe not what you are looking for.

And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.
I usually cook mine in lard or bacon drippings then toss with garlic powder if I'm eating them savory. Otherwise bake them whole and eat with butter and cinnamon. I would imagine they'd be fine with CO, though.
