What’s up with the ugly sweet potatoes?
When we dug up our sweet potatoes this year, we were so disappointed to find that nearly all of them had cosmetic damage to their skin. The insides are perfect, but the outsides are ugly. We’ve been holding them in our storage coolers trying to figure out what to do with them. We’re not proud of how they look, but they are perfect to eat and full of nutrition. We’re including them in the shares this week since we could not allow ourselves to throw them in the compost! We hope you can look past their ugly exterior and peel the skins to enjoy the goodness within!
