Frequently asked questions
Sweet potato fries are best made just before serving them, as they will lose their crispiness if made ahead of time and then reheated. However, you can prep the sweet potatoes ahead of time by cutting them and tossing them in the oil and seasoning mixture ahead of time. Store them in the refrigerator until you are ready to cook them.
Yes! But you will want to freeze them before cooking. Cut them down and store them in an air-tight container in the freezer. Then defrost them, toss them in oil and seasonings and cook.
Yes! However, if you double the recipe, you may need to cook them in several batches, depending on the size of your air fryer.
An air fryer uses hot air and a fan to cook food, similar to a convection oven. However, since air fryers are smaller and more compact than convection ovens, they are designed specifically for cooking food quickly. Convection ovens, on the other hand, are larger appliances that can be used for a variety of cooking methods, including roasting, baking, and broiling. They use a fan to circulate hot air around the food, which speeds up the cooking process and helps to create a crispy texture on the outside.
