Local Sweet Potatoes
Did you know that sweet potatoes are grown locally, in Odessa by Burt’s Greenhouses? In addition to the familiar orange sweet potatoes Burt’s grows fabulous purple sweet potatoes! They are purple inside too and hold their colour when cooked. Sweet Potatoes store for a long time if kept in a cool dark place, not in the fridge.
You may think that sweet potatoes are only for mashing but there are many great ways to cook them. French fry them, oven roast them with chipotle & lime, puree them with coconut milk for a hearty soup. We like to shred them and make Curried Sweet Potato Quiche.
