Sweet Potato

One of the rock stars of the root crops. Sweet Potatoes are highly nutritious and a good source of Vitamins A, C and the B-complex vitamins, as well as antioxidants.

How to Select

Look for small to medium sweet potatoes, which are sweet and creamy. (The larger ones tend to be starchier.) The skin should be firm, smooth, and even-toned.

How to Store

Avoid storing sweet potatoes in the refrigerator, which will produce a hard center and unpleasant taste. Instead, store your sweet potatoes in a cool, dry, well ventilated container.Avoid storing sweet potatoes in the refrigerator, which will produce a hard center and unpleasant taste.

How to Prepare

Drizzle the oil, honey, cinnamon, salt and pepper over the potatoes. Roast for 25 to 30 minutes in oven or until tender. Or bake and serve in place of a baked potato.
