  • 3 Tbsp canola or vegetable oil ($.05)
  • 3 tsp maple syrup ($.25)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon ($.02)
  • Kosher salt and pepper, to taste


  • Boil the sweet potato wedges for 4-5 minutes in salted water. Drain them in a colander, then plunge them for a few minutes in cold water to halt the cooking process.
