Recipes & Nutrition Analysis for Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are are an excellent source of vitamin A, and also contain fiber, vitamin C, and potassium.

Sweet potatoes contain an enzyme that converts the starch to sugar, creating their unique sweetness. This sweetness continues to develop as the sweet potato is cooked.

Sweet potatoes do well when cooked in a variety of manners:  baked, roasted, boiled, or microwaved and are great in soup, muffins, bread, or pie.

Tips:

When selecting sweet potatoes, choose small or medium sized ones with smooth skin. Avoid sweet potatoes with crack or blemishes - a spot of decay can ruin the flavor of the whole sweet potato, even if it is cut away.

Store sweet potatoes in a cool, dark place for use within 3-5 weeks. They should not be stored in the refrigerator, as they develop a hard core and the taste changes.
