The villagers came across potatoes and decided to prepare them the same way they prepare their fish. Thus, French fries were born. It was only until the 19th century that people started using sweet potatoes to make fries. Unlike the French fries, sweet potato is a famous Guinean cuisine where sweet potatoes are a more popular food option than white potatoes. The recipe was brought to the United States and soon introduced to the world.
