Slice the sweet potatoes lengthwise into ¼ inch thick slices. Cut the slices into ¼ inch wide sticks. Place the sweet potatoes in a large bowl, and sprinkle generously with salt. Let stand for about 20 minutes to release some of their moisture.
Meanwhile, preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place a wire rack on a baking sheet and set aside.
Spread the potatoes out on a paper towels to absorb any excess moisture. Then place them in a large bowl, and spray them with a cooking spray. Sprinkle with the thyme and salt, pepper, paprika, and cayenne to taste. Spread the potatoes out on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake the fries until they are golden and tender, 35 – 45 minutes
