Fall Sweet Potato Recipes

Oh man, do I ever love sweet potatoes. It's a love I just discovered in the past few years but, once found, I embraced it completely.
Sweet Potatoes
We prefer sweet potatoes with a white flesh, typically called Jersey Sweets, though any variety will work in these recipes 
Luckily, it is a love that is good for me with lots of fiber, vitamins B6, C & A plus potassium & manganese. Sweet potatoes, it is said, can even help you ward off things like flus & colds so, it great they are in season now.

We like them served like regular potatoes, baked or mashed but, they are also a fabulous baking ingredient, especially once turned into sweet potato butter. Here's a guide to some of our favorite Sweet Potato Recipes.

I didn't think I liked sweet potatoes growing up, but now i can't get enough of them. I definitely need to check out some of these recipes.

This year I definitely will be trying your sweet potato butter. As soon as I get my hands on some sweet potatoes!

I thought I had some good sweet potato as side dish recipes - but these are really creative and clever. Thanks for taking the time to share 'em. I'm going to try the Sweet Potato Hash very soon. Probably with a couple poached eggs on top.

Sweet potato hash? Now why didn't I think of that!

That sounds really good -- and like something I need to make!

Great post! I’m looking to make some changes in my own eating habits, so I appreciate your insight a lot! Thank you. I recently stumbled upon this blog like I did yours and I thought your readers may appreciate it: http://burisonthecouch.wordpress.com/2010/11/04/food-for-thought/

I’ve started to look for their stuff more regularly and I think I’m going to add your blog to my list as well. Thanks for the post!

I still have some sweet potatoes around here from my Dad's garden. I have to try that hash and that butter. They both sound so great!
