What to do with all those sweet potatoes — no marshmallows necessary

Grist.org - Sun, 12/28/2014 - 12:22

Winter is coming and we’re serious about keeping farmers market produce on the menu. Alexandra Stafford of Alexandra Cooks shows us how to store, prep, and make the most of it, without wasting a scrap. 

With dark, dirt-covered roots dominating every square inch, a winter farm share box can look bleak at first glance. Only the most charitable of souls could guess that brilliant hues and crisp, sweet flesh lie beneath those weathered, gnarly surfaces. But few vegetables clean up as nicely as roots, and all it takes is a little grooming.

From watermelon radishes, whose magenta, kaleidoscopic cross-sections are as stunning as a summer’s heirloom tomato, to slivers of raw, buttermilk-dressed celery root, this winter’s bounty has been a surprise — and it’s disappearing much faster than anticipated. Pounds of sweet potatoes remain, but after discovering this recipe in The New Moosewood Cookbook, I have no fear of feeling overrun when the next box arrives.

Food 52

Here, shredded sweet potato and onion, fresh lemon, a little flour, and eggs fry into the most irresistible pancakes, crispy on the edges and creamy in the center. They can be made large or small, and topped with anything from a hearty fried egg doused with hot sauce to a delicate spoonful of caviar sprinkled with chives. No matter the adornment, a dollop of crème fraîche (or sour cream or yogurt) is essential to balance the sweetness and cut the grease. And if you make tablespoon-sized pancakes, as I’ve done here, you have the makings of a perfect hors d’oeuvre to serve at a New Year’s Eve gathering.

With the holiday season nearing its end, the time has just about come to liberate the sweet potato from those warm spices, brown sugars, and candied toppings. In just a few days we’ll be roasting cubes with coconut oil for dinner or juicing wedges with kale for breakfast. But not before we pop open the Champagne and resolve to be better humans. Till then, fry away. Happy New Year, everyone.

Food 52

Choosing and storing your sweet potatoes:

  • Look for sweet potatoes with pointed ends and without blemishes or bruises. They can be large or small but should feel firm and heavy for their size. They bruise easily, so handle with care — once bruised, they spoil quickly.
  • Sweet potatoes store well and continue to develop sweetness and flavor as they age. The farmer that runs my CSA advised keeping sweet potatoes above 55 degrees F to avoid chilling damage. He also warned against storing apples or other fruits near your sweet potatoes (or any root vegetables) because the ethylene in the fruit can cause root crops to spoil. The best spot for storing sweet potatoes is a cool, dark cupboard in your kitchen or a closet.

Prepping your sweet potatoes:

  • If you’re leaving the skins on, be sure to wash and scrub the sweet potatoes well. If you need to peel sweet potatoes ahead of time, place the peeled pieces in a bowl of cold water to prevent oxidation.
Food 52

Cooking your sweet potatoes:

Roasted:

  • Sweet potatoes can be roasted whole with their skins on. Again, be sure to wash the sweet potato well before roasting. At about 400 degrees F, a large sweet potato might take as long as an hour to become tender. Prick with a fork or knife to check for doneness. Slice open, season with salt, pepper, and butter. Or scoop out the flesh and mash with butter, salt, fresh lime juice, and cilantro.
  • Sweet potatoes can be peeled, diced, and roasted with other root vegetables such as carrots and parsnips. Toss with olive oil, salt, and thyme, then roast for 30 to 40 minutes at 400 degreesF, stirring halfway through.
  • Coconut oil is a nice match for sweet potatoes, too. Brush cubes or wedges with melted coconut oil, season with sea salt, and roast at 400 degrees F until caramelized and tender.
  • Roasted cubes of sweet potato are a nice addition to any grain salad, especially one loaded with nuts, greens, and pomegranate seeds tossed in a lemony vinaigrette.
  • For irresistibly crispy chips, thinly slice sweet potatoes into rounds using a mandoline, toss with grapeseed oil and any spices you like — za’atar, smoked paprika, ground cinnamon, chili, cumin, and coriander are all great — and bake at 400 degrees F until golden brown.

Sweets:

  • If you still haven’t had your fill of holiday pie, boil and mash a couple of sweet potatoes, mix the flesh with sugar, spices, and eggs, and then spread the mixture over pastry. Bake into an earthy and buttery pie.
  • Or try buttermilk flan seasoned with cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger, and topped with caramel pecans and maple yogurt.
