Making oven fries out of sweet potatoes brings out their inherent sweetness.



READER'S COMMENT:
"I'm concerned about the canola oil. From what I've read, coconut oil would be better (yes, it's saturated fat, but its medium-chain triglycerides have a beneficial effect on the body). And for the reader who adds Splenda--!!!! Why don't...

In response to a previous reader's comment, sunflower and safflower oils are NOT healthy. Check out Rebecca Wood's book The New Whole Foods Encyclopedia or the article on fats and oils on her website. Futhermore, as a side note to RealAge editiors, you should check out the fat and oil guide as well, because it is NOT safe to heat ANY fat or oil above 375, and the only fats and oils that can go up to 375 are coconut, palm, ghee, and butter. Olive oil can go up to 325, sesame and peanut oil up to 240, and omega 3 up to 100 degrees. Heating these oils above these temperatures makes them go rancid, regardless of the supposed smoke point. Eating oil that has gone rancid causes inflammation, which causes disease. This needs to be addressed in all recipes advertising to be healthy!

It was good idea until you used canola oil, the worst oil to use for anything; much better oil is sunflower! I never eat any food (or salad) with canola, corn, soybean or vegetable oil; I use mostly olive, coconut, sunflower, safflower oils; coconut oil can't be used for high temperature cooking.
