Delicately sweet and incredibly starchy, Japanese sweet potatoes are drier than regular sweet potatoes and have a mild chestnut flavour. They are better steamed than roasted and they are great when fried into chips or baked into crisps.
Fresh Tips: Store them in a cool drawer or cupboard for up to a few weeks. Once cut and exposed to the air, Japanese sweet potatoes quickly begin to turn brown. With a bowl of cold water at hand, swiftly slice and immerse them to avoid browning.
