Nancy at Spirit Lights the way tempted my taste buds last week with a photo of Sweet Potato Fries seasoned with Lime Salt & Fresh Mint with a Sweet and Spicy Dipping Sauce on the side.

It sounded like it was right up my street.

  • Sweet potatoes. Check
  • Lime. Check
  • Rock salt. Check.
  • Fresh Mint. Alas I had finished the last of it a couple of days earlier.

I did have some Sweet Chilli sauce to which I added a teaspoon of honey and a dash from my ever open vermouth. So I set to work.

First I zested a lime and found a small screw top jar for salt and zest. I gave them a shake and left it to work the magic.

Later I scrubbed some sweet potatoes and parsnips (my own touch) and cut them into chunky chips.

My starter to enjoy by the fire!

Thank you Nancy!

  1. These look incredible! And I am sure they taste just wonderful, too. I like the addition of turnip and will need to assemble my ingredients and then go for it! 🙂

  2. Synchronicity! That’s what I had for my supper except I mixed up mayo and hot pepper relish for dip. Oh my. It should be against the law 😛

  3. If you went into a veg shop here, you might get a question in return if you asked for “sweet potato” – here they are known as Kumara and you can get them different colours 🙂
