Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are one of the few crops that flourish in North Carolina’s climate. The ones in your box come from Jillian & Ross at Open Door Farm down the road from us. They’re a pretty wondrous vegetable – creamy and sweet and nourishing. And they’re delicious mashed, roasted, hashed, and even just steamed!

Storage

Do not put sweet potatoes in the fridge! Leave them on the counter or in a cabinet, open to the air. Will keep for a month, if not longer.

Cooking Tips

Our favorite way to cook sweet potatoes is simple: poke a few holes in their skin, slide them into a 350-degree oven, and roast until fully tender all the way through. Slice one open, melt a dollop of good butter on each half, sprinkle with salt and eat with a spoon. Sweet potatoes are also great diced and then roasted; and then made into sweet potato hash, sweet potato miso turmeric soup, or black bean sweet potato enchiladas. Or try them steamed with tahini butter!
