Japanese Sweet Potatoes Get the Most Important Seal of Approval!
Last week I mentioned that we picked up some Japanese Sweet Potatoes from Landisdale Farms at the Piazza. Tonight I mashed them up and tested them on the most important critic - my son Ethan. Sarah peeled them and we boiled them up until they were soft. I used 5 little to medium potatoes. Unlike sweet potatoes I am accustomed to, the flesh of these were white to yellow. After I mashed them up, I added a tablespoon of butter and a half of a cup of milk. I thought they were delicious. They were sweet but more subtle than the sweet potatoes I am used to. Ethan went to town! I took some pictures to mark the occasion. He looks pretty satisfied to me, and Ethan is a finicky eater! These potatoes definitely have a place at our table from now on.
