Sweet Potatoes & More at Winter Farmer’s Market

CSA season is over now, but Winter Farmer’s Market is going strong! Look at that gorgeous chard, and those bright yellow cauliflower. Notice, too, that there are FOUR types of sweet potatoes here. From back to front, we have:

  1.  Your standard sweet potato – these are either Beauregards or Oklahoma Reds.
  2. Banettas – light orange sweet potatoes that are white inside. They are definitely still sweet potatoes, but a bit more subtle, closer to a white potato.
  3. Burgundies – these are the sweetest sweet potatoes, and are dark orange inside.
  4. Purple sweet potatoes – were not sure of the exact variety, but they are purple inside too!
