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 had plenty on hand, so we heated up the Instant Pot to 275°F (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!
