I have decided this may be the year of Curry for me. My first foray into this splendid world of spice is timid. I have decided to take the generic recipes I have found online for sweet potato fries and kick it up a notch. I have added some West Indies Curry to my sea salt and cracked black pepper and tossed them with the potato wedges and olive oil. I don't know for sure how it will turn out, but right now, it smells FABULOUS in the oven.

**** The sweet potato fries came out perfectly! Here is my little recipe:
Heat oven to 425.
Wedge your potato into whatever size pieces you like (we used 1 big sweet potato)
Make a mixture of 1 TB sea salt, 1 TB cracked pepper, and 1-2 TB West Indies Curry Powder (keep in mind, this mix is actually something I bought in St John. It has cumin, coriander, tumeric, curry, cinnamon and some other miscellaneous spices in it).
Toss the sweet potato wedges with 1-2 TB olive oil (use the good stuff)
Toss in the spice mix and toss to cover.
Throw all the wedges on a cookie sheet or pizza pan (preferably, one with edges that come up) and put in the oven for 30-45 minutes. Flip them at half time.
