Why didn't my sweet potato fries get crispy??!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for this entire post & everyone's feedback on trying the various methods!!! I have been trying to get these right for months now & am having a BBQ Sat with BBQ ribs & Jerk chicken both of which sweeet potato fries are fantastic with (even though mine have never quite turned out as I wanted, they still tasted great with the two dishes). I don't have a convection oven (DRAT!) but am going to try the cut, place in water 20 minutes, mix the seasoning with the cornstarch & place the fries in a paper bag and coat them. I'm very enthusiastic that they will come out great thanks to all of your hard work!!! :)
