They have a creamy flesh with a sweet flavour that is sjimilar to squash or roasted chestnuts.Sweet potatoes are a staple food in the West Indies, Africa and Asia and are increasingly popular in Western cuisines. Choose firm sweet potatoes with undamaged skin.Sweet potato can be served roasted, mashed or baked as an accompanying vegetable or added to stews, soups, curries, pasta dishes or vegetable bakes.
