This isn't really about raw, because we usually eat them cooked as french fries, but ocassionally raw as dehydrated chips. Has anyone found a good way to french fry sweet potatoes? We've tried cutting them, but it's way too hard on your hands and takes forever. We've tried a mandoline, which works okay, but ours is pretty old and breaking and we haven't had any luck finding a new one that does a good job with them, as they're too hard for most of them. And we got a potato french fry maker machine thing, which you push the lever and it cuts it into french fries, but besides the fact that the potato has to be cut really small to even fit, the sweet potatoes are way too hard for it to cut through and it won't last long at all. So, has anyone found any better ways to do this that don't take so long and are easy to do?
