    Last night we made sweet potato fries in the oven.  We tossed them with olive oil and seasoning and a bit of corn starch and put them in a 450oven for about 30-40min.  I love how they turned out, tasty and soft but my husband wants them to be crispy.  How do you achieve that in the oven?

    I've been working on this too.  Have not yet prefected crispy baked sweet potato fries but get better results if I bake them low for 30 minutes till done on the inside and then bake them hot.  And spaced out on a pan lined with aluminum foil.

    How did the cornstarch work?
