  • Cut sweet potatoes into medium-sized strips like French fries.
  • Let potatoes soak in water for an hour (not mandatory, but recommended).
  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Put 1-2 tablespoons of cornstarch into a plastic bag.
  • Pat potatoes dry with a clean towel (if needed), then add a handful at a time to the bag with the cornstarch.
  • Seal the bag and shake until the fries are all lightly coated, repeating with remaining potatoes and adding more cornstarch if necessary.
  • Place cornstarch-coated fries on a nonstick cookie sheet, then drizzle oil over top and mix with your hands until well coated.
  • Arrange on the sheet in a single layer with a bit of space between each fry if possible. (The more spread out the better they’ll cook; if there are too many on the tray, they won’t get as crispy.)
  • Place in preheated oven and cook for 15 minutes; stir and flip, then return to the oven for a bit longer if necessary until the fries are cooked to the desired doneness.
  • Allow to cool slightly before serving.
