Beauregard Sweet Potatoes
Menu Group: Food
Section: Vegetables
Category: Sweet Potatoes

Vendor: Porter Hill Farm

These red skinned sweet potatoes have a moist orange flesh. Wonderful baked - which is my favorite way to cook and serve - but they can also be roasted, or mashed.
May be a single large 2+ lb sweet, or several moderate sized sweets. Some broke during harvest, especially the long ones, so will have a healed scar at one end or the other, but this does not affect the cooking or flavor.
