                         Peanut oil for frying
    1      pound         sweet potatoes -- peeled

 Heat 2 inches of oil in a heavy saucepan or fryer to 375 degrees.
 
 Grate the sweet potatoes into medium-sized bowl, cover them with 
 boiling
 water, and let them stand for 15 minutes. Drain off the water and 
 slowly
 add the remaining ingredients, stirring to make sure that they are 
 well
 mixed. You should have a thickish paste that will hold its shape when
 picked up in a tablespoon. If the mixture is too thick, add a bit of 
 warm
 water. If it is too thin, add a bit more flour.
 
 Drop the mixture, a few tablespoons at a time, into the hot oil and 
 cook
 the fritters for 3 to 5 minutes, or until they float to the surface,
 turning them once to make sure that they are slightly browned on each 
 side.
 Drain on absorbent paper and serve hot.
 
 Yield: 6 to 8 serving
