You’ll need a few pantry staples from Wildly Organic

  • Himalayan Pink Salt  – Wildly Organic’s Pink Sea Salt is a pantry staple that I just can’t live without. It is a pure unrefined “raw” sea salt that can be used in many gourmet applications including seasoning, brining, and baking. 
  • Organic Avocado OilAvocado oil and coconut oil are the go-to oils in our house. Avocado oil makes the ideal vegetable oil alternative. 
  • Organic Paprika – Another fantastic spice staple. It’s a versatile spice that can be used on various dishes from a roasted whole chicken to eggs!

How to get crispy sweet potato fries

Pro Tip: The key to crispy homemade sweet potato fries is letting them dry out after cutting and not overcrowding your baking sheet. Oh, and don’t forget to flip halfway! When you do these three things your fries will be baked to crispy perfection. No one likes soggy fries.
