Japanese Sweet Potatoes

October 1, 2011

We wanted to issue a slight correction on the purple sweet potatoes in the co-op style produce shares for today…

The shares actually include Red Japanese Sweet Potatoes that have dark red/purple skin and a creamy, white flesh inside.  Not the purple-fleshed variety like we said in this post.

Here in the U.S., Japanese sweet potatoes are a fleeting fall crop, so enjoy them while you can!  To us, they are much sweeter than a regular orange sweet potato.  If you like their delicate, sweet taste, store them loose in a cool drawer or cupboard for up to a few weeks.

Also, we ran across this recipe from Mark Bittman of the New York Times – Shredded Sweet Potatoes with Browned Butter and Sage.  Yum.  Let us know how you like them!
