Sweet Potato French Fries With Homemade Ketchup And Applesauce

Sweet Potato French Fries 4

I love sweet potatoes, you can do so many different things with them. You can add them in to your salad, make chips, fill them with vegetables, make mashed sweet potatoes and so much more. Today I made some French Fries, but of course not just Fries. Because what are French Fries without Ketchup and Applesauce!

When I look back at my holidays in France, I think about eating outside in the sunshine at a beautiful old fashioned restaurant. When I was younger and I had to order some food in one of those restaurants, I would always go for the French fries with applesauce. But since I love sweet potatoes way better than regular ones, I decided to make some sweet potato fries but MUCH healthier. 

Sweet Potato French Fries:

Ingredients

  • 1 Sweet potato
  • Pepper, Thyme or any other spices you like

Directions:

Preheat your oven at a 220Β°C. Now start cutting your sweet potato into long fries shaped stripes.Sweet Potato French Fries 2Put them in a bowl together with the spices and mix the spices into the sweet potatoes. Place the sweet potato fries onto a baking sheet with parchment paper and put them in the oven for about 12-15 minutes.

Sweet Potato French Fries 3After those minutes flip over the sweet potato fries and put them back in the oven for about 10 minutes. Keep an eye on your fries, because they really do not taste good when they are burned.

Applesauce:

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 Apples
  • Cinnamon (optional)

Directions:

Peel your apples and cut them into small cubes. Place the apples in a small saucepan with just a little water, so the apples won’t burn. Leave the pan on the stove until the apples are very soft and you can mash them easily. Mash the apples and if you want you can add in some cinnamon to taste. You can chose to serve the sauce when it is hot or when it is cooled down. Both ways taste amazing!

Ketchup:

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Cup drained tomatoes (from can)
  • 1/2 – 1 Teaspoon vinegar (white and apple cider are both fine)
  • Paprika powder

Direction:

Before you are going to make the ketchup, make sure that the tomatoes are well drained or the ketchup will be too thin. Mash up your tomatoes into a foodprocessor or blender. Add in the vinegar and paprika powder and mix everything well together.

You can serve your fries onto a plate or you can create your own little paper french fries holder.I think that the holder is a fun way to present your fries for a party. Especially kids will love eating the fries this way.

Hope you all are enjoying your day!

keep dreaming

    1. Thank you so much, applesauce is my favourite too! I don’t only love it because it is extremely delicious, but also because when you make it the whole house starts smelling like heaven. A very delicious applesauce variation is using not only apples but some pears too. So goodπŸ˜› Have a nice dayπŸ’ž
