  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  2. Wash and scrub potatoes to clean and remove dirt.
  3. Leaving the skin on, cut the sweet potato into 1-inch slices. Take each slice and cut into sticks (about 1 x 1 x 4 inches in size).
  4. Toss the sticks in a bowl with the oil and maple syrup. Add nutmeg, cloves, and salt and toss, making sure the fries are well-coated with the seasonings.
  5. Spread the fries onto the tray, in a single layer. Bake for 16-18 minutes, flipping halfway through. Let cool slightly before serving.

Chef Tips

Try to cut sweet potato fries into equally sized pieces so they cook at the same rate. Make sure the fries are covered in enough oil — if they aren’t they will burn quite easily!
