4 medium sweet potatoes, 2 T. cornstarch, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 tsp.  salt, 1/4 tsp. nutmeg, 1/4 tsp. cinnamon sugar, vegetable oil for frying

Peel and slice the potatoes like you would cut russet potatoes for frying.  Get a bowl, add the potatoes, and cover them with cool water.  Soak the potatoes for 45-60 minutes.  This step gets rid of some of the starch.  Remove them from the water and dry them completely with paper towels.  Sprinkle the cornstarch over the potatoes.  Get out a heavy skillet, and add the oil heat to 375 degrees.    Add the fries and cook until golden brown.  Drain on paper towels and sprinkle the sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt.
