Sweet Potato Recipes

Compiled by Janet Borman and Linda Sherman

These recipes are for both the sweet potato lover as well as those who, before trying them, were convinced they did not like sweet potatoes in any form or fashion. We feel there is something here for everyone.

Sweet potatoes are a very nutritious food. A baked sweet potato has no more calories than a cup of milk, but supplies enough beta carotene for one person’s daily requirement of Vitamin A and about one-third of the requirement for Vitamin C as well as many more vitamins and minerals. They’re very good simply baked in their skins, and they’re also delicious made into sweet potato pies, fries or mashed with syrup on top. We think you will find sweet potatoes delicious just about any way you want to cook them.
