Sweet Potato Fries with Pearl Street Plank Rub

Allow a sweet potato per person.

Sweet potatoes
Peanut oil
Pearl Street Plank Rub1

Mix Pearl Street Plank Rub with salt until it is just salty.

Preheat enough oil (1 ½ Inches) to cover a handful of fries to 370 F.  Use a pot with high walls to prevent splashes.  Peel outer skin from potatoes peeling down to the red flesh. Cut potato down the middle to get a flat side. Now slice with a chef’s knife to get even slices about 1/8th of an inch thick. Now batch cut a stack of slices to make individual fries. Try to make them uniform so they all cook about the same time.

Fry sweet potatoes until they visibly darken and are crisp. Turn out on paper towels and immediately dust with rub/salt mixture. Turn fries, dust again. Serve as you would regular fries or as a appetizer. There are great!
