Thanksgiving Week: A Different Way to Do Sweet Potatoes
If you're planning on sweet potatoes for Thanksgiving this year, there's a few things you might want to try. Chef Billy with Restaurant Associates stopped by Tonia's Kitchen with some ideas on how to make something sweet, even better. Chef Billy told Tonia he's roasting sweet potatoes whole, and mash them with a light amount of ginger and orange rind. It really makes these sweet potatoes sing! Plus, when looking for sweet potatoes, do something a little different and get Korean or Japanese varieties. There a little drier than then the ones we normally get, and he says they're unbelievable delicious. One more tip, when roasting the sweet potatoes, don't crack them with a fork while they're in the oven. They might fall apart.
