Sweet Potato Fries

I'd planned to post these last week as it was National Chip Week, but I was super busy and the week got away from me. So I'm a little late, but hopefully you'll still enjoy these spicy fries.

We don't eat chips very often, so they're a real treat when we do have them. 

I actually have an Actifry so I can make fresh chips that are much healthier and lower in fat, but I just threw this batch in the oven, so they're super simple to make.

Also, try Fajita dirty fries.

I promised you my three favourite dips for chips, so here we go.

In the past I may have said I like to dunk my chips in french mustard or tartare sauce, but for these sweet potato fries I needed something a bit more special.

I'm lucky enough to be sent a lot of products to try. 

My postman recently said to me he's delivered a parcel to me every day since he started this round and I do receive a lot of products to try. 

My husband is on a record kick at the moment, so a lot of the parcels are for him. I don't know where the heck we are going to put all these records. 

He brought all his record collection down from the loft. I despair sometimes. I'm sure he thinks we like in a much bigger house than we do.

One of my recent parcels contained one of my new favourite dips, another I was sent back in 2013 and the third I make myself.

Garlic Mayonnaise - This golden mayonnaise comes from Hillfarm and it's made with rapeseed oil for a healthier mayo. It's my favourite jar of mayo. The garlic flavour is delicious but not overpowering and it's gloriously creamy.

For a dairy free option try my Vegan Mayonnaise.

Dill and Mustard Sauce - I said "Oh my god" when I opened this jar and tried a spoonful and when I tried it with my Sweet Potato Fries I said "oh my god!" again. It's heavenly and I seriously could eat the whole jar with a spoon. It's also creamy and has a fabulous fresh dill flavour and the mustard gives it a kick, but it's not too strong. It would be great in potato salad or topping a veggie burger.

Sweet Chilli Jam - This is a really easy dip to make and it's super tasty. If I don't have any homemade sweet chilli jam I sometimes buy sweet chilli sauce, which is nice, but just not as special as the real thing. I recommend you try this.
