"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

3 medium or large sweet potatoes 2 T. olive oil 1 tsp sea salt dash of cinnamon (optional) rosemary (optional)
Quarter each sweet potato, then slice the sections lengthwise, creating pieces the size of large steak fries. Place slices in a bowl and toss with olive oil. Add salt and either cinnamon or rosemary if desired. Spread fries in a single layer on two cookie sheets. Place in a 425 degree oven (preheating is not necessary) and bake 20 minutes. Remove cookie sheets from oven and flip fries with a spatula or tongs, then bake an additional 15 minutes or until fries are lightly browned with crispy edges. Cool on a baking rack to maximize crispness. Serve with ketchup or other dipping sauce.
