I believe the leaves are toxic, so don't use those.

If it comes from a plant, eat it; if it was made in a plant, don't. Michael Pollan

What you do to the world, you do to yourself.

If you used Rhubarb, would you use the stalks and leaves or just stalks?

I have juiced sweet potatoes on several different occassions. I found them to be very good.

I usually like a combination of carrot, cucumber and celery in just about all my juices and the sweet potatoes went extremely well with these.

Thanks for those suggestions. I'm just starting out. I tried yams yesterday but I hid them in lots of sweet fruits!
Perhaps later I can be brave and just have them with another veggie.

Thanks Lisa - I did a sweet potato with one orange, cinnamonk, cloves and nutmeg and it was like drinking pie - nice and creamy.

Today, I am adding bitter melon to the group - you must remove the seeds and it is pucker bitter but with cilantro and some stevia and then over ice - it is really tartly good.

It is great for diabetes: got time watch this video:

I have juiced sweet potato and it was pretty good. It was part of a recipe not just by itself.

I recently had someone ask me about juicing potatoes and I had this thought, yuk - they are only good two ways to me, as french fries or in potatoe salad. Okay, so I got some food issues - that is why I juice to help with it. Anyway, it got me to thinking, potatoes are odd, and I found nothing about jucing them - but a lot about not eating or eating them. But there are some things, which many of you may have done, but others may have never though to try:

Sugar Cane
Sweet Potatoe or Yams and even white yam
Tomatillo
Sea Bean ( long beans - real long)
Chayote squash
White Asparagus
Star Fruit
Gai Lan - Chinese Broccoli and/or Kale
