The sweet potato, wheh properly pre
pared, is a most palatable and excellent
food. The food value is high. The
Georgia sweet potato has a fuel value of
558 calories per pound, as compared with
378 calories for the white-potato. Of the
North. It is-slightly sweeter than the
Northern sweet potato, containing 26 per
cent, of starch and sugar, and therefore
has a higher food value per pound. It
is also more moist when cooked. Con
sidered as a source of energy, the sweet
potato is much more economical than
meat. It is excellent food for every
member of the family, young and old.
On account of its food value and energy
giving qualities . it is recommended for
children especially. From a dietary
standpoint it is a most wholesome food,
and can be served with every meal.
Below are some recipes, using sweet
potatoes. More will be given later:
Baked Sweet Potatoes.—This is prob
ably the most wholesome way of cook
ing sweet potatoes, since some sweetness
is lost when they are steamed or boiled.
Choose smooth, healthy potatoes; wash
well and place‘in a pan in a moderate
oven. Bake until soft. As soon as the
potato is soft to the touch, the potatoes
Freid Sweet Potatoes.—Partially cook
in boiling water with the peeling on.
Cool, peel and nnd cut in slices and
brown in butter or meat fryings. They
may be sliced, rolled in flour and brown
ed carefully in a small amount of fat.
