Sweet Potatoes

Sweet Potatoes

A sweet alternative to the regular Russet or Yukon gold, this humble root lends itself to a plethora of different cooking methods. Great as a casserole dish or simply steamed, this spud is no dud when it comes to health-boosting benefits.   

Health benefits:

Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of beta-carotene, an antioxidant that supports the immune system while lowering the risk of developing cancer and heart diseases.

This energy-rich root vegetable ranks low on the GI scale – great for diabetics as it keeps blood sugar levels in check. With its high fibre content, it regulates bowel movements and reduces bad cholesterol levels.

Types of Sweet Potatoes:

Stokes Purple

A unique sweet spud that stands out with its dramatically deep purple skin and flesh, the Stokes Purple is dryer and denser than its regular orange-fleshed counterpart. It offers a rich flavour with a well-balanced sweetness.  

Great for:

Steaming, boiling, roasting or frying.

Jewel Beauregard

You can easily recognise this tender tuber by its dusky red-skinned exterior and moist orange flesh. Often described as a cross between a sweet potato and an Idaho spud, the Jewel Beauregard is subtly sweet.

Great for: Baking, boiling, mashing or frying.
