Sweet Hot Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Over the past several weeks, we have picked up 10 pounds of sweet potatoes at our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). This has given me the opportunity to do a bit of experimenting. Samuel didn't eat french fries often but, he really misses them. Most restaurants cook them in soybean oil which is a big no no for Samuel. We don't often buy white potatoes so I decided to try to use the sweet potatoes to make a substitute.

3-4 pounds sweet potatoes
1/2 cup of olive oil
1 large garlic clove, crushed
1 TBS honey
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
Dash of nutmeg

Heat the oven to 350. Wash, peel and cut the sweet potatoes. Use a whisk to mix all the ingredients, except the salt, together. Coat the sweet potatoes in the mixture and add a little salt. Place the sweet potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet (I prefer stoneware). Put in the oven for 35-40 minutes or until they start to brown.
