Product Talk: Sweet Potato


Baked sweet potatoes are one of my favorite side dishes. Looking at a sweet potato you can see the bright orange color indicating that it is a good source of vitamin A; one cup of cooked sweet potato actually has 769% of your daily value of vitamin A. One cup of cooked sweet potato also has 65% of the daily value of vitamin C, 50% of the daily value of manganese, 29% of the daily value of vitamin B6 and 27% of the daily value of vitamin K.

I love everything with pumpkins, like pumpkin spice cookies, but pumpkin is hard to find outside the months of October and November. One trick I found this year is that you can substitute sweet potatoes for pumpkin. Next time you find a delicious pumpkin recipe but you can not find pumpkin, just cook a sweet potato and add the amount of sweet potatoes it says for pumpkin.
