Saving Sweet Potatoes

Querencia | Apr 8, 202010:50 AM    

This week stores have sweet potatoes on sale to go with the Easter ham (in Chicago they're 39 cents lb down from $1.59 lb). If you want to take advantage of the sale and freeze some, here is an easy way that works well: 1) Boil whole unpeeled sweet potatoes until you can stick a fork in them. 2) Drain off the water. 3) Cool. 4) Slip off the skins (they come right off). 5) Dump in a can of crushed pineapple, liquid and all. 6) Mash everything up together (very easy; any big spoon will do). 7) Package this in meal-size portions. 8) Freeze. 9) Zap as needed---especially good with chicken, pork, ham. Depending on taste, you can finish them with either hot chili flakes or toasted marshmallows.
