Betcha never ate a sweet potato like this before!
As I mentioned I'll be posting tidbits of various books from the library and a discount bookstore. Here is a recipe from, "Juice!" by Pippa Cuthbert & Lindsay Cameron Wilson:
This thick juice, although earthy in color, tricks the tongue with a mysteriously strawberry-like flavor.
1 sweet potato, peeled and chopped
1 orange, peeled and halved
1 banana peeled.
Juice the sweet potato and orange. Blend with the banana. "
The recipe says to juice, but I just blended them together for a while. I ate this with a spoon! It is GOOD!
Another note says that sweet potatoes are often confused with yams - sweet potatoes are slightly sweeter and longer. I live in the Midwest and it seems all I can find are yams (yams are also more orange in color). In my version, I used a Japanese sweet potato that I had bought at an Asian store.
