Summer Fest: 5 Ways to Prepare Sweet Potatoes

Roasted Sweet Potatoes

The last official day of summer is September 21 and fall begins the next day. Sweet potatoes are available most of the year, but the fall season is truly when they shine as that is when the fresh crop comes in. Select potatoes as blemish-free as possible, and store them in a cool, dark place that’s a bit warmer than the refrigerator, where they can last a few months. The ideal temperature for storing sweet potatoes is in the 50s. They’re so versatile that they can be roasted, mashed, grilled, stuffed or fried and still taste amazing.

You need only five ingredients to get great flavor from this roasted sweet potato side dish. Toast the cumin and Sichuan peppercorns until fragrant, then then grind them. Sprinkle the spices and salt over sweet potatoes, drizzle with oil and toss to coat. Transfer to a baking sheet and roast until tender.
