Sweet Potatoes

We cure our sweet potatoes in the greenhouse for a few weeks to improve their sweet flavor and their ability to store.

Storage Tips

• Store in a cool dark place for about a month

• Do not wash until just before you use them

Culinary Tips

• Wash well before cooking

• The skin is edible so you don't need to peel them

• Bake sweet potatoes whole at 350° until soft when pricked with a fork. Split open and add a pat of butter

• Slice sweet potatoes into chunks and toss with olive oil, thyme, salt, and pepper. Roast at 350° for about 45 minutes. Add chunks of potatoes and carrots for a winter root bake.

• Chop sweet potatoes into very small cubes. Heat butter in a sauté pan and add sweet

potatoes. Add cinnamon and ginger and sauté until soft and tender. Serve with rice.

• Sweet potatoes go well with butter, cinnamon, orange, ginger, brown sugar, maple syrup, pecans, and walnuts.
