A Sweet Potato vodka --- from Houston

I’ve been working more sweet potato into my diet for several years. After growing up detesting the gloppy, too-sweet T-Giving and Xmas casserole (‘You have to try at least one serving, Bruce.’ Actually, my mom said that to everybody at the table except dad; he knew better than to wait to be told to eat some), it was years before I was willing to give it a chance. Now, I have SPs on hand most of the time.

So here’s another way to work some more SP into my diet :innocent:


I too avoid sweet potato/yam. At one time, I tried to work some in using the baked potato method with lots of butter. Nope, I just can’t. There are very few things I don’t like, add liver and beets to this list and it’s complete.

But I’d go for that vodka. :smile:


Me too. I made a note to follow up on that. Don’t know haw to work the emojis yet.


we have the usual “holiday” sweet potato dishes, but for everyday my fav is:
boiled - that’s it.
trim off the ends
boil in unsalted water - takes 45-60 minutes depending on size
when “fork tender” remove, allow to cool slightly
skin peels off veddy easily.

served “as is” or with butter

Easy and quick to micro, too.

As far as I am concerned, substituting boniato is not cheating. And I am unanimous in this!

I’ve gotten it at HEB. Surely Fiesta has it. Gets you away from the orange fleshed sweet potatoes which evoke such throat clutching horror.
