Sweet potatoes

Sweet Potatoes are such a versatile vegetable. You can use them in savory dishes (anything from curries to soups to roasted vegetables) or you can go the sweet route and add a little honey, brown sugar or maple syrup to really bring out the natural sweetness of the sweet potato. They work well either cubed and boiled, baked, or pureed and are a stand out on their own or paired with other ingredients. There is really no limit to what you can do in the kitchen with sweet potato!

CSA members who have received sweet potatoes have noticed that we have left them in their work clothes (still with some residual dirt on them). We have done this because unwashed sweet potatoes store much better for us. When you are ready to cook them simply rinse the dirt off under warm running water. Also sweet potatoes are best stored above 50 degrees so keep them out of your fridge for the longest storage!
