Foodie Byte: Sweet potatoes are rich in dietary fiber, complex carbohydrates and beta carotene and are a great source of vitamins A & C, iron and calcium. For a spicier dip, double the cayenne pepper in this recipe.

Preparation

  1. Prepare sweet potato fries according to package directions. Season with kosher salt.
  2. While sweet potato fries are baking: combine apricot preserves, orange juice, country mustard, Dijon mustard and cayenne pepper in a small nonstick sauce pan and whisk to blend. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 3 to 4 minutes or until sauce starts to thicken (sauce will continue to thicken as it cools).
  3. Serve sauce with sweet potato fries.
