Harvest of the Month: Sweet Potatoes

porters-3

Sweet potatoes grow in the heat of summer and store well in the cooler months. They are loaded with vitamins and… they’re sweet. Students like them! Our talented kitchen managers decided how to serve them – some baked them, some served them as wedges. They made a great addition to the Thanksgiving meal served at schools before the break began.

Thanks to Danny Johns of Blue Sky Farm in Hastings (the potato capital of Florida) for growing them!
