How to Make Root Vegetable Fries

By Molly Watson, About.com
Cutting root vegetables into sticks and frying or baking them works best with the starchier root vegetables like potatoes and sweet potatoes.
Preparations:
1. Peel vegetables and cut them into French fry sticks that are as even as possible.
2. Soak cut vegetables in cold water for half an hour.
3. Pat vegetables thoroughly dry.
4. To fry: Heat oil to 325 – 375. Fry vegetables in small batches until tender and browned. Drain on a cooling rack or paper towels. Sprinkle with salt and serve.
5. To bake: Toss vegetables with vegetable oil to coat. Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt. Bake at 425 until tender and browned, about 20 minutes. Serve immediately.  Read more at: http://localfoods.about.com/od/preparationtips/tp/rootvegetables.htm
