    I love the sweet potato, especially the dark colored one. They are yummy in anything and everything. They are even good for our pets.

    I’d like to make a motion that the sweet potato be given national status as our national food. We have a national bird, why not a national potato? 😉

    CindyP,

    Yummy, what a good reminder of how wonderful sweet potatoes are. Don’t forget to add dehydrating them to your list. I love quickly making up mashed sweet potatoes from my dehydrated stash. Tastes every bit as good as fresh.

    In honor of this special day, I’m going to nuke a SP and have it with brown sugar & butter.

    I frequently hear holidays being referred to as Hallmark creations, so my curiosity got the better of me when I read this. Being from KC I’m protective of this hometown institution. Guess what? Hallmark has nothing to do with National Cook a Sweet Potato Day. Just setting the record straight.

    If you bake a cleaned sweet potato on the rack of a slow oven (less than 200 degrees) for 6 to 8 hours, the natural sugars in the tater caramelize and you don’t need to add any sugar at all, and the low heat doesn’t kill the enzymes, making it extremely nutritious, too! You can start them in the morning to have ready by dinner, or bake them overnight to have for breakfast! They’re fabulous!
