The push to Thanksgiving Day is on...and to continue on that path down Gluttony Drive...let's talk sweet potatoes.
I'm a huge fan of sweet potatoes and try to eat them as much as possible outside the month of November. Whether in mashed, smashed, fry or chip form, it's an alternative to a regular potato that's welcomed both at home or while dining out.
This article from the Wisconsin State Journal gives an outstanding look at the health benefits, ways the ingredient can be utilized, along with the difference between a sweet potato and a yam.
Bet you didn't know there was a huge difference...but there is.
Another favorite story of mine was the time a woman I worked with at a call center in Tempe, Arizona brought me in some of her home-made sweet potato pie. It was the best home-made pie I've ever eaten. Of course we'll look past the fact that lard was used to make the crust since I'm trying to tout the health benefits of the main ingredient.
What's some of your favorite ways to eat the bright orange spud?
