Veggie Unearthed: Mini Sweet Potatoes

Potatoes_Sweet600

Your Local Mini Sweet Potatoes came to us from our favorite potatoes farm, Blue Sky Farms in Hastings, FL — less than 100 miles from most of our customers’ homes.

These sweet potatoes will be a mix of varieties and smaller in size.  Blue Sky is working with the University of Florida to experiment with new sweet potato varieties perfect for our Florida climate.  We sampled some last night and think they have found some winners!  They were sweet and delicious!

Sweet potatoes are a super food! Just 1 cup of baked sweet potato has 7 grams of fiber, 4 grams of protein, 769% of your vitamin A for the day, 65% of your vitamin C, and tons of beta-carotene, which makes them cancer-fighting, chronic disease-preventing spuds. It is hard to believe that something this delicious is good for you.

Because of their size we definitely recommend roasting or making sweet potato fries over traditional baking.  Here are some idea to get you started!
