Curly Sweet Potato Strings

on July 22, 2013


My crossfit coach made these for an event recently and they are amazing!  So, now I make these every chance I get… they are so good!  Thanks, Rocky!!


  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Yucca
  • Beets
  • any other root veggie!
  • Fat to fry in- I used Palm Shortening, but lard, coconut oil, or bacon grease would be fine!

Peel root veggies, using julienne peeler or spiral slicer to make thin strips.  Heat oil in deep fryer to high setting (mine only goes up to 375). Fry roots for approximately 3 minutes.  Watch closely, they get brown/burnt very quickly!  Remove and add salt or cinnamon… both options are quite yummy!  Enjoy!
