About the Holiday

National Cook a Sweet Potato Day celebrates these tuberous roots that should not only be eaten during Thanksgiving and Christmas, but year round. Sweet potatoes are a very good source of beta-carotene, vitamins A and C, and vitamin B6. Their natural sugars are released slowly into the bloodstream so you don't have to worry about any spikes. Sweet Potatoes are typically baked or boiled and are extra tasty served with cinnamon, nutmeg, butter, brown sugar, or melted marshmallows. They may also be eaten as sweet potato pie, fries, or chips.

Gift Guidelines

  • Sweet Potato pie
