Wow! Sweet potatoes. So close to home. Sweet potatoes are readily available where I live and they are available year-round. They come in different varieties and cooked in many different ways such as candies, fried, boiled, and many others. There are deep yellow, purple and light orange varieties and the deep yellow variety is believed to contain the highest amount of beta-carotene which is good for the eyes and skin. I want to try this Sweetest Sweet Potato Casserole but probably tone down the sugar a bit because the sweet potato itself is already sweet.
