Now a lot of people absolutely adore french fries made from potatoes, but don’t be surprised if these carrot fries don’t become a big hit in your household. Do yourself a favor though stay away from the deep frier and bake these in the oven. Much healthier and oh so yummy especially when seasoned properly.
