Fall’s a great time to see the leaves turn, watch football games, celebrate anniversaries, and eat sweet potatoes. There are other things, too, but we skipped all of that to get to the bottom line of this post: sweet potatoes. These are not just normal orange sweet potatoes (really yams), but these are the original: white sweet potatoes. Apparently, before yams rose to prominence as THE sweet potato, when you referred to sweet potatoes, you meant these white sweet potatoes. If you wanted yams, you asked for them.
We really like these white sweet potatoes – they’re a great alternative to yams to mix things up throughout the fall – slightly different taste and texture that you can play with get some creative new dishes. Here’s one idea we had – mashed white sweet potatoes with chestnuts.

PS. Did we mention that they’re REALLY frugal, too?
