I’m a real fan of cooking food from scratch. Firstly, it is usually cheaper. Secondly, it is usually healthier too. These are a winning combination for me and often what motivates me to get off my backside and make something tasty for dinner. While getting a takeaway is a nice treat I don’t always want to feed my family unhealthy food and this is where my airfryer sweet potato fries come in. They are a nice compromise between fried chips and being healthier. My airfryer sweet potato fries take just a few minutes to prepare and they are pretty tasty too.

My airfryer sweet potato fries taste delicious, are simple to make and healthy too

As you can see it is really simple to make airfryer sweet potato fries thanks to this chipper that I bought. As sweet potatoes are harder than normal white potatoes I did have to cut them up a few times. This meant that in total I spent around 2-3 minutes chipping the potatoes. This is significantly faster than doing them by hand and I was making a LOT of airfryer sweet potato fries. I love the airfryer. You can cook with air only, but I often add a few sprays of oil. Typically I will use no more than 10 sprays of 1 calorie oil. I’m trying to cut back and that stuff is pricey!

    My particular one isn’t the easiest to clean, however, they sell glass ones so they are miles easier!

    That is great news about your slow cooker, well done.
