UPDATE:from 11/18/10 Sweet Potatoes now Canned :o)
I still have some on the Patio, peeled and in Lemon Water. I will make some Candie Potatoes for the freezer today after I purchase some tins..and purchase more sweet potatoes to have on hand while the sale is on...Also Sweet Potatoes are supposed to be good for Diabetics :o) (those are the best excuses I could come up with to buy more.:o)
If you do a close up, you will notice that the jars with the label are the first batch I did , I boiled them and then peeled, jarred,and added hot water> I didn't like they way they had to be handled. They were hot,and became mushy when put into the jar. Although the jar was fully packed after canning,I can only make pies, cakes and another whipped potatoes recipe. So I did the second batch My way I peeled them, cut them up in large pieces (chunks) , jarred them, added the boiling water and pressure cooked 10 lbs pressure for 1 1/2 hours. To me they came out pretty neat..I can make candied yams, sweet potato pies, Cakes or whipped potatoes, whichever I choose. Maybe I'll bake a few the weekend :o) Sounds to me Potatoes are like a Chicken, you cook them in many ways.
