Love those sweet potatoes. Both sweet and savory. On thanksgiving I serve whipped sweet potatoes and they are and ingredient in my two rice stuffings I serve. My oldest won't eat them cooked, but will eat them raw. I would like to find a source for seed sweet potatoe to grow in my garden this summer.

Just so all you untested secretor status A's out there who are wishing they could have sweet potatos know, you can have sweet potatos if you are a nonsecretor A. They become a neutral. They seem to do ok with me if I dont have them too much. I also love sweet potato shreaded pancakes.

Okay, tell me the secret. Looks like i'm way out numbered here. I do not like sweet potatoes
I've tried them in sweet dishes in my youth.... yuck who ever thought to add marshmellows to them?
I have tried them baked lately and they are so-so.
Maybe I'm just missing something, but I can't get past the sweetness of them.

I originally started eating sweet potatoes by putting a cranberry, pineapple compote on them...  The fruit definitely takes the sweet out of them...

My hubby and I LOVE to eat our sweet potatoes this way:  We dice them like you would for hashbrowns and then saute them in olive oil with minced garlic and various herbs (basil, parsley, etc)...or we cut them into bite sized pieces and brush with olive oil, garlic, herbs, etc and roast them in the oven or on the BBQ...DELICIOUS!!!

omigosh, the hannah is so creamy textured and mild, just delicious. Tomorrow I'll eat the japan.....as I recall it is sweeter, as in very sweet, but starchy, too.

For me Eating it with anything other than just Sweet Cream Butter is too much...Salt & Garlic takes away from the subtle flavour of the vegetable itself.

Another way to prepare it though is a sort of 'Casserole' - Plums, Nectarines, Apples, etc. Covered & Baked plain, If worried a little Ghee or EVO in the dish. Very good even for a Vegan Main course.

Ruthie, I've been to southern Illinois and southern Indiana and love them both. I also remember the jitterbug but I have to say I was not enamoured of Frankie.  I was stuck-up at the time and thought anyone who would scream and swoon were not sophisticated.  Sophistication was a big thing with me, then, and I probably got that idea from the movie stars of that time.  I've changed a lot and I do like Frankie, now, even though he's dead!

I like sweet potatoes with butter and salt, as I said, but I'll take them any way they're presented, except with marshmallows

When I go to friends' houses for potluck dinners, my contribution is always whole baked sweet potatoes.  I'll cut the baked SW's into rounds and lay them all out on a nice platter.  Then I dab butter or ghee over the entire assortment.  They're always a hit, and I always have something to eat that way.  Amazing how people go crazy for such a simple food at potlucks.  With all the mix-match, the sweet potatoes just disappear!

... a hannah and a japan sweet potato...


??? Can't wait to hear the verdict....

I recall now that the Phillippines make an ice cream with Ube.
The english labels always says Yam - But I disagree.
Its quite good actually. Though a sort of ghastly Greyish-Purple colour.

According to my SWAMI results, I'm supposed to be eating a lot of sweet potatoes.

Here in California, I found a brand called Alexia that makes a frozen french fry of sweet potatoes.  We bake them,
and then add a bit of chili powder, yum!  I think there may be an avoid or 2 added in the processing, but there are
no trans fats used.  I decided for my teens, both Os, that this was better than a regular french fry once in a while.
But I have made oven fries out of fresh sweet potatoes, with a bit of olive oil, salt, garlic or rosemary added.  Love
them when I am craving a sweet!

Ok, the verdict is: I would choose Hannah for its creamy texture. But if you want something on the plate next to a steak (or lamb chop) the Japan is so starchy, like a white potato, and of course, delicious. (they both win, duh.)

Sliced and fried in Olive Oil, or Baked with Ghee the very best.

Thank you jayneeo for sharing your personal feedback on these two sweet potato varieties.  This information helps others who may have the opportunity to find these varieties in their stores.

Growing up with the Thanksgiving sweet potato thing........I hated them.  Of course those were actually yams, with the marshmallow and brown sugar and what not.

When I started the BTD, I found that I love sweet potatoes.  Fix them all kinds of ways.  Mashed are one of my favorites, and on rare occasion they make fabulous french fries.  Being a Type O, this gives me a wonderful way to indulge in "the carb fix".  

Mostly I eat them with MEAT!  I love my meat.

Becky, sweet potatoes are often called yams, but really aren't. It's hard to break the habit.
