The good news is, sweet potato fries do not require garlic aioli and they are pretty easy to make!
Fries after first frying
Sweet Potato Fries
2 large sweet potatoes
1/4-1/3 c. brown sugar
1/8 c. salt
4 cups water
oil for frying (I used vegetable oil)
(a little extra salt and brown sugar for sprinkling over finished fries)
Cut the sweet potato fries into 1/4 x 1/4 x 3-4" (or however long you like fries) segments. Mix 1/4 to 1/3 c. brown sugar and 1/8 c. salt in 4 cups of water in a mixing bowl. Stir until sugar and salt have dissolved. Add fries and wait one hour. Heat oil for frying. Place fries in the oil for 6 minutes. Remove and allow to rest 2-6 minutes. (If desired throw more fries in for 6 minutes. If all fries fit in your container, you only wait a couple of minutes.) Place rested fries back in the hot oil for 2 minutes. Remove to a plate and sprinkle lightly with salt and as desired with brown sugar. I recommend very little salt and maybe used 1/8 c. brown sugar for sprinkling.
Devour them before the others at the table get them first! Note: Frying them twice gives them a crispy texture. I didn't think it would matter and I tried some from the first round. They were ok but really not the right texture.
