Toothless Dec’s Sweet Potato Fries

Toothless Dec’s Sweet Potato Brown Ale Fries
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Feeds: 4-6

It’s come to that dark, dreary time of year when comfort food and dark beer go hand in hand. So…how perfect do a batch of sweet potato fries with a good soak in brown ale sound? We can tell you, only about half as good as they taste!

Ingredients

1.5kg sweet potatoes
1 bottle of Toothless Dec’s Brown Ale
3 Tbsp sunflower oil (or olive, etc..)
2 large garlic cloves, finely minced
1 sprig fresh rosemary, finely chopped
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper

Directions

To make these really tasty sweet potato fries, preheat oven to 220°C.
Scrub potatoes, and cut to a size that suits you. Leave the skins on.
In a large bowl, soak the cut fries, in Toothless Dec’s Brown Ale.
Let soak for 15 minutes, tossing 1-2 times.
Drain Toothless Dec’s Brown Ale and toss with olive oil, garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper, until well coated.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment (optional, but nice for quick clean up!) and spread the fries, in a single layer on the pan. Use two pans, if needed. You don’t want them stacked.
Bake for 45 minutes – 1 hour, depending on how done you like them, tossing 3 – 4 times.
Add more salt and pepper to your liking.

Having a slow day? Welcome to our world! Here, occupy yourself with this Craft Beer Word Search.

We took a stroll around the brewery and pretty much just wrote down everything we saw, then bunged it into this little puzzle, just for the craic.
