Purple Sweet Potato

Orange sweet potato, everyone knows that...but purple?....

Recently my neighboor came back from holidays and got me one of those pink little sweet potatoes. I never tried that before, I cut it into half and it was all purple, almost freaked-out, I ran to pick up my camera believing that I found some alien fruit...it turned out that I was wrong.


Purple sweet potato, also called Okinawan potato or Hawaiian purple sweet potato, was a new sweet potato species from Japan. Its ancestor is the orange sweet potatoes, but tastes a bit different from the orange sweet potato. If you don't like to eat it just like that, you can make your own recipes of purple sweet potato: purple sweet potato soup, purple sweet potato pancake, purple sweet potato crackers......time to show your imagination and cooking skills! (I ate mine just like that, because I couldn't wait and it tasted good...hmm)


The picture below is a desert made from purple sweet potato.
Purple sweet potato chips anyone?
Do you know that sweet potatoes are considered healthy food? Scientists also found out that they are a good source to help prevent diseases such as cancer or tumor.
