Fried Yams


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.
