    When it comes to eating sweet potatoes for dinner, I REALLY love combining them with my slow roasted pork recipe. The combination of flavors is just... heeeeavenly. It's like the flavor of both the meat and the potato is multiplied just by having them on the same plate :P . It works for me cus you can get a pork butt/shoulder for UBER cheap, and its a very tender, flavorful cut of meat. Usually you can buy it for about $1.50 per pound around here, though they have the prok on sale for 89 cents this week. That gets you a HUGE chunk of meat, enough to feed you for an entire week costing probably $7~$9 at that price. That's less than the price of 2 or 3 good sandwiches at a fast food restaurant.

    I've never had sweet potato fries, but i really want to try some. I should look around to see who might have some. I've heard some tales and legends of nearby sweet potato fries...

    That pork thing sounds like a fabulous idea. I should try that!

    Always eyed them a bit suspiciously in the supermarket, until I tried sweet potato fries for the first time and found that I really like them. After reading this thread, I'm definitely hungry now and going to get some breakfast.

    Sweet Potato Fries:

    Preheat oven to 400. Cut potatoes into 1/2" sticks. Coat pan (baking sheet or cake pan) with olive oil, then put it in the oven to warm for less than a minute. Take it out and throw in potatoes, tossing with the olive oil. Bake for 10 minutes, then remove and flip the potatoes. Bake 10 more minutes. Delish!

    I approve of this thread. I ate so many sweetpotatoes sophomore year of college that I turned orange from the beta carotene, especially on my face and hands. A lot of people thought I was using crappy self-tanner lol. I'm a guy and so I cut down a bit on the sweetpotatoes so as not to feed into this idea.

    Haha, are you serious!? Well I'm dark skinned, so i doubt anybody will notice if I eat them day and night :P .

    Here's an interesting article I read about a new variety of sweet potato supposedly being developed:

    Houston - Eating Our Words - A Sweeter Sweet Potato


    Sounds good to me. I've mainly only had the one variety of sweet potatoes, the garnet yam. I'm sure there have been times in the past when I've mistakenly picked up other varieties at the store like the jewel yam. Right before I went on my first camping trip I bought a few sweet potatoes from the store for the campfire, but also saw for the first time real genuine YAMS being sold there. Real yams are not grown in the united states, they originate from Africa, and they are unrelated to sweet potatoes botanically. I bought a couple to try out for the first time. Unfortunately, I had no idea how exceedingly dry the things were, making them completely inappropriate for cooking over an open fire, even when wrapped in foil. Apparently genuine yams need to be boiled because they have a very low water content. The sweet potatoes, however, never tasted better. After hours of hiking and slaving away trying to set up camp before sunset, I was tired and hungry as hell, and I tell you those sweet potatoes tasted like they fell straight from heaven or something.

    I really want to try purple (the flesh is actually purple!) yams someday if I can find them.

    Just dug up the ones in my garden. Got more than enough to fill up a 5 quart ice cream bucket, despite the poorly prepared soil, rocks, and weeds. I don't think I got them all and will probably get some volunteers next year. I don't know what type I grew, but they seem sweeter than the ones I've bought at the store.

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
