23 Apr Japanese Sweet Potato Fries
If you haven’t tried a Japanese sweet potato, you really need to! This root vegetable has a deep magenta skin and white flesh that turns a pale golden tone as it cooks. They’re drier and creamier than orange-fleshed sweet potatoes. They are also not as sweet tasting like an orange sweet potato – they are more of an earthy, chestnutty sweetness rather than a sugary one. Also, Japanese sweet potatoes are more dense and luscious. If you find sweet potatoes a bit too sweet then you need to give Japanese sweet potatoes a try. You can steam them whole and enjoy them or cut them into fries and bake them. Here is a quick and easy recipe for Japanese sweet potato fries that you can make in your air fryer or oven.
