Update on the Frozen Mashed Sweet Potatoes
I know it's only been four months, but I dug someone for dinner the other night to test them for the first time. Even though they were bagged twice, I still had some ice on them.
They were delicious, and tasted as if they were baked. They were thick and tasty. It was like eating a baked sweet potato without the skins.
I put them in my oven frozen, and heated them through. Our one daughter who told me she "hates mashed sweet potatoes" ate an entire one herself.
They were delicious with nothing on them, but I did top mine with a dollop of organic butter.
I will be doing this again if my garden harvest is low. We find it difficult to buy organic during winter months, and this is an excellent way to ensure healthy meals. And of course a quick healthy side dish. The meal in the photo is a quick version of a ham tetrazzini - using what I had on hand and in the freezer.
