    1. Thanks Sheryl. I have to confess that I think it was mostly accidental as I had to get them on the table so we could eat! I am always getting into trouble for taking pictures when it’s hot food. 🙂

  1. I absolutely love sweet potato fries, especially when baked. In fact, I’ve got a post for spiralized fries languishing in my “to post” file. I’ve not thought to season them with cumin nor honey, for that matter. I must give them a try but I’ll pass on the coriander. Not really a fan although I’m trying to introduce it, leaf by leaf, into some recipes. They jury is still out whether this tact will be at all successful.

    1. I did it with spiralized too but they didn’t cook very evenly so they went to my ‘unused file’ because it wasn’t good enough. You will have to post yours now!

  2. Having problems posting this as a reply on my site, so, I’ll try again here …
    It’s written, Amanda, I’ve just got to put it on the schedule. It’ll get there, probably this fall. 🙂

  3. Love this one. Cumin is one of my favourite spices. Who knew it went so well with honey? I will have to try it out the next time I make sweet potato crisps. xo

    1. Thank you.I do this with carrots or swede too. Also good with parsnips and maple syrup. Love all the root veggies!
