    My momma is makin' some right now for CDN thanksgiving this weekend. (I am studying and get a free pass from helping this year. I guess that means I should get off the 'net.)

    My freshly purchased sweet potatoes thank you!

    Unless they don't like to be cooked and eaten, in which case they curse you. However, surely something as awesome as a sweet potato knows its job in life is to provide delicious sustenance!

    We went to dinner last night and I had fluffly mashed sweet potatoes with brown sugar and a splash of amaretto. Came with pork tenderloin and plum sauce and tasted awesome.

    I couldn't get them to thell me how exactly he prepared the sweet potatoes, but might be worth experimenting. Yum!

    I used to love them the most, but butternut squash is my new favourite

    I get these all the time.



    I love them baked too.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Now that's what I like to hear!

    Tis the holiday season, and sweet potatoes are currently on sale for $.40 a pound here. They have the white sweet potatoes, the garnets, and the beauregards. Here in cali, garnets are pretty much the only ones we have for most of the year. I know out in the midwest and south the beauregard is the most common. The garnet yams are very sweet, but also very moist. This makes them very poor for a lot of recipes that don't involve sweet potato puree, bcause the moist potatoes tend to fall apart when cooked. The beauregards are nearly as sweet but have significantly less moisture in them. They stay very firm when cooked.

    Truth be told, I am just now figuring out that this is why I could never replicate my grandmother's candied yams/sweet potatoe recipe :P. The damn wedges always fell apart in the pan, and I pretty much gave up on it and resorted to baking them instead. It's nice to know it was mainly due to us using different types of sweet potatoes, and not my cooking skills :P . I've gotta say I prefer my potatoes to have less moisture, so the beauregards are more favorable than the garnets. Too bad they only seem to come around during the holiday season. I'm going to stock up on a few more pounds of them, cook them, and then freeze them.

    That's how much I just bought them for. (shrug)
