I fried the sweet potatoes in canola oil they turned brown and a little bubbly on the out side but once i layed them on a paper towel they got soft and any crispyness they had left, what do i need to do to make sure they are real crispy and dont get soft? Thanks

I cooked the swt. Potatoes fries in my deep fryer. They were awesome. I found that you had to cook them a little longer if you like the crispness. I garnished them with a little Splenda. My family and friends loved them:)
