Editors Note: This recipe was submitted on our Favorite Camping Recipes Page.Directions:
3 large yams, scrub clean with skin-on
Canola oil, for frying
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground taco seasoning
Whisk together in a small bowl and set aside.
1. Quicker method: Poke yams with a fork 2-3 times and place yams in microwave 5-6 minutes. Remove.
2. In a heavy pot for frying or a deep-fryer
, heat enough oil to reach halfway from the bottom of the pot, to 350 degrees F.
3. Cut yams in half and then cut each half into 6 1-inch thick wedges.
4. When oil is ready, reduce heat to medium-high and carefully place half the yam wedges in the oil. Cook turning occasionally to brown on all sides, about 9-12 minutes, or half the cooking time if micro waved. Remove and place on a paper towel to drain. Repeat.
Sprinkle the fries with salt and pepper, and now the yams are ready for the dipping sauce.
