do you like your sweet potatoes cooked? What are your favorite ways to eat sweet potatoes and are you cooking sweet potatoes for Thanksgiving. I just bought a huge bag and I am going to bake them up.

All we got for this Thanksgiving was a can of yams since it will just be me and my husband who eat them and I will just eat a couple of bites of them. I usually put them in a pan and put butter and brown sugar on them and heat them up in the oven. The fresh sweet potatoes I bake and then when ready to eat I put butter on mine.

I just mash my sweet potatoes and add them to regular mashed potatoes. . Sometimes I'll just peel them, slice them and throw them into a pan with a little butter and sugar. I let the sugar carmalize and then add just enough milk or cream to make a nice syrup. DCMerkle

That is a great price. I only like sweet potatoes in a pie. Many of my family members enjoy them. They are not my favorite.

I got a huge bag for about 1.53 and it was heavy. I am going to bake them and I like them with just a little butter. I got marshmelloes and brown sugar just in case..lol

I love to microwave them and put butter on them and sprinkle them with cinnamon and sugar.

These were very fresh. Now I have a question, they were sky high here untill Walmarts brought in the batch for Thanksgiving and then the prices went way down... now why cant they do this all the time?

If I am not mistaken, they get harvested when frost kills the plant, so that puts them as freshly harvested at Thanksgiving. Supply was up, and Wal Mart needed a loss leader.

I bought some yams for free, I went to albertsons to get yams (which are the same as sweet potatoes) w picke up the yams with out other groceries and teh cashier rang them up as sweet potatoes which was a dollar more than yams. We went to the customer service counter and he refunded our full price for them. so we got them for free.

I felt like I got a really good deal at this low price but free is even better. Happy holidays and appreciate the response.
