Sweet Potato Fries with Creole Seasoning Crisped in Duck Fat

This one is a little labor intensive but worth the results.  Who doesn’t like a crispy, spicy, sweet potato fry? Now, we start with air frying the sweet potato until just done.  Then we do a quick pan fry in duck fat to crisp the potatoes; that keeps the seasoning on the fries, not on the plate.  I hope you like it.
