Hey I need help from someone who loves sweet potatoes as much as I do. I eat more calories from them than any other food. Just throw them in the crock pot, go to work, and slip them out of their skins and eat when I get home. They also digest SO easily
But this last week they haven't been cooking down to that nice slippery, almost creamy consistency that slips right out of the skin and through the gut. What gives?? Anybody have any clue on how to tell if a sweet potato is bad like these so I don't waste more money? They're not even close to rotten and they look normal... they have the sweetness and texture of a potato, but I don't want a potato, I want a sweet potato. >:( #firstworldproblems
same exact brand and everything, it's bizarre... As far I as I know, supermarkets just mislabel sweet potatoes as yams, and yams are a whole different family that aren't really popular outside of Africa and and aren't common in Western supermarkets.
btw, purple sweet potatoes are totally awesome, I rarely see them where I live though
Thanks for your reply :)
