 Sweet Potato

Use in soups, curries, stir-fries and vegetable side dishes

Varieties include:
Gold: a thicker, dark orange skin with orange, dry flesh ideal for baking
White: thin, light yellow skin and pale yellow flesh. The flavour is not as sweet as the gold variety

Avoid those that are cracked, bruised or soft.

In a cool, dark, well-ventilated place, maybe in the potato box.

Sweet potatoes should be brushed, cleaned and peeled thickly. Cooking time is dependent on quantity and size of rounds. Boil or steam for 10-15 minutes or until tender (cut into thick rounds).
Microwave in a covered dish with 2 tablespoons water on HIGH (100%) for 8-10 minutes, stirring after 4 minutes to ensure even cooking. Bake chunks of sweet potato with potato and pumpkin when roasting meat.

Serving suggestion:
Grill slices of sweet potato brushed with oil and sprinkled with chopped rosemary leaves until tender and brown. Serve with grilled chops. Serve with zucchini, tomato halves and eggplant slices.
