Here are her notes, "A good vegetable chock full of vitamins... Adds color and distinct flavor to any meat course... poultry or ham especially." —Leslie Stephens

- Cook sweet potatoes in their jackets in a pot of boiling water until fork-tender. Drain and allow to cool for about 5 minutes for easy handling.
