Lower Fat & Lower Sugar Sweet Potato Fries

"Honey" Mustard Sauce recipe link

We’re always reading about food science and were surprised to come across a paper that said that low-temperature deep frying doesn’t actually add a significant amount of fat to the food, as “we all know”. This had to be tested! With sweet potatoes on sale for 39 cents a pound at Hannaford we have plenty on hand, so we heated up the Instant Pot to 275 (saute high) with our very best fryer oil (mostly lard and peanut oil today) and while it did take a while (about 35 minutes), these are easily the best fries we’ve ever made! Just a light sprinkle of salt and a generous helping of Kidsweet “Honey” Mustard Sauce, and we were in sweet-fries heaven! Give it a shot!
