Fried Sweet Potato Tidbits Recipe @pinch

Serve these sweet potato tidbits as a side dish or a snack. If you dip them in honey, as suggested, they could almost be a dessert. The batter is seasoned with sweet and savory spices along with a touch of sugar. Once fried, the batter crisps and gives the sweet potato fries a nice balance of sweet and savory. I looked and looked for a recipe for fried sweet potatoes. I was unhappy with any recipes I found, so I came up with my own. These were a hit with ALL my kids. And we, as parents, know how hard that is. I have 4 kids, and next time I will be doubling my recipe.
