Disclosure: The California Sweetpotato Council compensated The Recipe ReDux (co-owned via ReganMillerJones, Inc. and Teaspoon Communications), to sponsor this recipe contest. We aren’t eligible to win prizes related to the competition. I additionally gained a field of California sweetpotatoes to make use of for recipe trying out. My ideas and reviews are my very own.

No, that’s no longer a typo within the recipe name.

There’s a brand new spud on the town by means of the West coast and it’s the California sweetpotato –  as in sweetpotato being one phrase no longer two (even though my spell test begs to vary.)

The California Sweetpotato Council is sponsoring this Recipe ReDux recipe problem and is spreading the phrase about those beauties, that are other from different candy potatoes available in the market. Some details about California sweetpotatoes:

And as you’ll be able to see above, all aren’t essentially orange. The 3 hottest sorts come with:

Covington (Orange) – Rose coloured pores and skin and tremendous orange flesh. Nice for roasting and mashing.

O’Henry (Tan) – Light copper pores and skin and candy, white flesh (it nearly looks as if a typical potato!) Nice for soups and stews.

Diane (Pink) – Pink pores and skin and deep orange flesh. Nice for making sweetpotato fries.

I finished up the usage of a mixture of the O’Henrys and Dianes for those tostadas. Talking of tostadas – a phrase about tortillas basically. A couple of weeks again, I had an epiphany after I made Lindsay @ Lean Inexperienced Bean’s recipe for complete wheat tortillas. So easy, really easy and so scrumptious – I can no longer be going again to the packaged ones anytime quickly.

Extra just lately, fellow ReDux member, Robin @ Robins Chew, shared that she took inspiration from the similar recipe and made home made corn tortillas from masa.
