Another in the We Eat Them So You Don’t Have To… No, Wait, You Should series.
Last night at my house we had oven-baked sweet potato fries, made with this recipe.
Ornamental sweet potatoes are bred for pretty leaf color, not taste. And these tasted… kind of bland compared to the others, but not offensive. Rather like regular potatoes, in fact. So, dig up your sweet potato vine and if you have tubers, try them. I am still fine seventeen hours later. (Actually I have a cold, but that’s not dinner’s fault.)
Warning: always check authoritative sources before experimenting with new foods you may have inadvertently grown!
