Just weeks ago I was talking with a friend about baking sweet potatoes, and she mentioned that she loves to bake them, and I said I do, too. She said she and her husband enjoy them, “but I can’t believe he doesn’t eat the skin.”
Eat the skin? “I don’t eat it either,” I said.
Why not? It just never occurred to me. I love to eat the skin of a baked russet, but a sweet potato? Well, I gave it a try, and it’s delicious (and packed with vitamins and nutrients).
Savory and sweet, the sweet potato is also found in recipes for biscuits, pie, pound cake, and waffles.
Here’s a link to get you started with some recipes.
I wondered if yams are something different . . . turns out they are sweet potatoes, just one variety of the colorful tuber. Sweet!
