Sweet potatoes can be make into sweet and savory dishes. In the south we have sweet potato pie. I took that concept ande made it into a panna cotta and the i finish it off with sugar on top and torch it as you would a creme brulee to give it a little extra texture and sweetness.


  1. 1roast sweet with skin on in 350 degree oven until tender. let cool then peel skin off and put flesh in a bowl.
  2. 2Add heavy cream, spices, light and brown sugar, and vanilla to same bowl. with an emersion blender puree all ingredients together. put mixture in a pot and bring it to a simmer.
  3. 3In a seperate pot add mike and gelatin together. let gelatin bloom for 20 minutes the turn on med heat and bring milk to a simmer.
  4. 4Once both pots are at a simmer. whisk the sweet potato mixture into the milk and simmer for 10 minutes.
  5. 5Strain mixture into a large bowl and divide it into souffle ramekins.
  6. 6put the ramekins into the fridge for 2 hours to let set.
  7. 7before you serve sprinkle the sugar in the raw on surface of the panna cotta and with a torch melt sugar as you would a creme brulee and enjoy.
