Sweet Potato Tips

  • Orange-flesh Sweet Potatoes are ideal for boiling, whipping, roasting, casseroles, fries and baking.
  • White-flesh Sweet Potatoes have a drier texture and are excellent for baking, roasting or pan frying.
  • At home, Sweet Potatoes do not get stored in the fridge. Simply, keep them in a cool, dry place like the bottom or your pantry.
  • Do not seal uncooked Sweet Potatoes inside a plastic bag during storage. Some ventilation is best.

Recipe Ideas

Jon introduces several organically-grown Sweet Potato varieties you’ll find at natural food stores, food co-ops and organic markets. Sweet Potatoes are harvested during late summer and early fall – so October through December is considered peak season. But growers store and ship them all year long.
