Sweet potatoes and white potatoes, to me, are two totally separated foods. Not interchangeable. But that is me. Potatoes are a starch. Sweet potatoes a great alternative to dessert; just crumble a little raw brown sugar and butter on it. But that's me.

sometimes I cook several sweet potatoes and then keep them in the fridge. A quick pop in the microwave and I have dinner.

@Sheannutt Tastebuds are funny. My ex thought cruciferous veggies tasted bitter. I LOVE broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, etc. Not so much brussels sprouts. My kids take after me! It is also like the cilantro thing. To some folks it tastes like soap, not to me and my kids. The partners of the kids have the soap thing.

I love sweet potatoes but can't grow them where I live.

I’m growing them and started eating then instead of whit potatoes. And the leaves are good in salad.

They have a few more calories per hundred grams - 87 as opposed to 76, so shoyuld be treated with caution on a calorie-controlled diet. If you are not on a diet, they make delicious crisps (US chips) cooked in the oven, lightly sprayed with oil and salted.

I have planted a good quantity this year, ,_.50 slips, so I am looking forward to the harvest.
Hopefully several bushels by November.

@Sheannutt no need for canning.. Sweet potatoes, unlike the regular potatoes keep well for a year, provided they will not freeze, and do not wash them. Next summer some of them will sprout new vines to get a new crop.

And useful to diabetics, unlike ordinary spuds.

But, if you hare cardiac problems they are also very high in potassium. Not good.

Posted by LorajayMany of my shrubs look like they may not make it after our 12 days of extreme freezing weather but my Chinese quince is prettier than it's ever been. Perhaps it would prefer a colder climate.
