The Glorious Sweet Potato!

Thursday, November 22, 2012

I learned to enjoy sweet potatoes later in life. I really couldn't stand them in my youth as it was usually covered with tons of marmallows. I can't say why I didn't like it, but I surmise that it was a bit too sweet. The glorious sweet potato has its own natural sweetness.

Below is "All Hail the Sweet Potato" from Mark Bittman's blog from the New York times:


Enjoy your Thanksgiving, and your sweet potatoes!

    I LOVE sweet potatoes! And since I am allergic to nightshades, they are my go to potato since they really aren't 'potatoes' at all.

    I've noticed that not many people I know like to eat the skin as well. I do.

    Every time I see a baked sweet potato I think of my mother. They were some of her very favorite foods. I like them too, but not like she did. Hope you have had a very special Thanksgiving Day.

    I love sweet potatoes! I have way too much food in the house so I baked up one of my many butternut squashes instead of sweet potatoes--just baked it in chunks and drizzled it with a little maple syrup--nobody knew the difference!
