rotuts,

 

The asian sweet potatoes I can get that make good fries look like the first two images in this link: https://www.google.c...DA&ved=0CEMQ7Ak


I want to move to another planet, with pure spring water.

 

This planet would have a global climate like Hawaii, California, Florida.

 

We'd raise perfect and abundant flora and fauna!

 

Want to come with?

rotuts,

 

I hope you can find them and make good, crispy fries from them. They always work out for me. They have a drier consistency, and crisp up much better than the orange ones we grow right here in NC.

 

I think they give them a tempura treatment in some Asian countries, but I have good luck with them unbattered even as oven fries just coated with a little oil and roasted at high temp. I always peel them because the skin is a little thick and tough.

 

And, yeah, there are a lot of bargains and very interesting ingredients to be found at your local Asian market. It's one of my favorite places to explore.

rotus,

 

Please let us know how your Asian sweet potato oven fry experiment turns out either way.

 

I know you have a steam oven, but I don't think that would enhance this project. You want to eliminate moisture, not add it.
