Family fun...

Hunting for the elusiva batata...
It's as big as 'is 'ead!
Fortunately I like sweet potatoes...

looks like a fun, messy harvest!

Lovely-this is the variety I like most-the purple skinned, white flesh, rather than the less flavorful orange fleshed. Try boiled and mashed with chevre, garlic, a pinch of black pepper and fresh rosemary-yum!

good eye there, nicole. they are the white-fleshed. a bit mealier than the orange-fleshed. you are absolutely right about treating just like regular potatoes -- i think i'll give your recipe a try tonight. i have some pepper boursin -- lowbrow goat cheese, but tasty stuff.
