Sweet Potatoes

Sweet Potatoes are very good from late summer on;
August 21 - November 30

This traditional southern vegetable takes well to sugar, spice, fat, and acid.  I like to make fries with it and serve it with a bright, sweet, spicy ketchup.  I also like a sweet potato casserole: 

  • 4 large sweet potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups apple juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 3 large apples - peeled, cored and sliced


I skip the marshmallows on top.
