Organic Stokes Purple Sweet Potatoes
Do you know your Sweet Potatoes? There are quite a few Sweet Potato varieties that are great for a lot of different purposes. Let’s take a look at some that you might want to be on the look out for.
Just like the name suggests, Purple Sweet Potatoes feature purple skin and a deep purple flesh, rich with antioxidants and phyto-nutrients. How do they taste? The flesh is slightly more waxy and drier than orange-flesh sweet potatoes. The flavor is a rich balance of sweet flavor and yam-like earthiness.
What do you do with Purple Sweet Potatoes? I baked mine at 350F wrapped in foil rubbed with olive oil and seasoned with salt, pepper and Italian herb seasoning, similar to the instructions on the Frieda’s Produce website.
