Sweet potato wedges baked with some mild herb

I love sweet potatoes on Thanksgiving day. At other times when I prepare them it is usually with a touch of herb and spice baked with drizzles of canola oil over them. You may add some brown sugar if you want the sweetness to stand out more than the herb and spice. The taste is absolutely heavenly.

Use this recipe for 2 medium-sized potatoes and adjust as you increase the quantity. Lightly boil the potatoes(5 minutes) so the initial toughness disappears. It will be easier to peel now. Peel and cut them into wedges. Drizzle some canola oil over the wedges. Mix them thoroughly next with about 2 tsps. of ground cumin and 1/2 tsp. of cayenne pepper. Sparingly sprinkle some brown sugar(optional). Bake at 375 degrees until the wedges appear lightly toasted. The final outcome will be an irresistible mix of sweetened, spiced, aromatic, both crisp and soft sweet potato wedges.

Enjoy!! Haven't heard from any of my readers in a while. So, let me know how they turn out!
