This month at the Gluten-Free Menu Swap, we’re discovering old and new ways to enjoy Fall Produce. This week, we’re exploring ways to add Sweet Potatoes to our meals.
What variety of Sweet Potato do you buy and eat?
I usually buy the standard Sweet Potatoes (rosy skin color, orange flesh), but I’ve been intrigued by the Golden Sweet Potatoes and Garnet Red Sweet Potatoes I’ve been finding at the stores and the farmers’ markets. I’ve been told that the darker skin colors are sweeter, and the lighter skin colors are more mild. I may have to do a taste test this week and see for myself.
Nutritionally, Sweet Potatoes are packed with good stuff. They are an excellent source of Vitamin A and Beta Carotene, as well as a good source of Vitamin C, Vitamins B, Manganese, Copper, Potassium, and fiber. So eat it up this fall!
