This is more of an information file than a recipe. But, there are several ideas for recipes in it.
Sweet potatoes and holiday dinners seem to go together. This versatile vegetable is a fiber-rich food, high in vitamins A and C.
Sweet potatoes are easy to cook. Try baking them (450ø for 40 to 60 minutes). Rub a little margarine on the skin before baking to make it softer. Or, you can boil them, whole and unpeeled, for 20 to 30 minutes.
For mashed sweet potatoes, peel boiled sweet potatoes and mash with an electric mixer. Add one Cup of warm milk and ¼ Cup margarine for every four cups of mashed potato. For a different flavor, use orange juice instead of milk and add a dash of nutmeg.
You can also shred raw sweet potatoes and add to salads; cube them and add to stew; pan fry them cut into slices with sausage and apple; pare, slice and serve raw with a dip; or french fry them like regular potatoes.
