|Jamaican sweet potatoes made an excellent addition to Jamaican soups or Jamaican sweet potato pudding. They are now one of the main crops grown in the Caribbean, with Jamaica and Haiti being the largest producers.
The sweet potatoes grown in Jamaica are not orange, but red-skinned and white or yellowish inside. Regarding texture, they are more starchy and dry than their orange counterparts.
|For optimal storage of Jamaican Sweet Potatoes, it is crucial to keep them in a cool, dark, and well-ventilated place. Ideally, store them in a pantry or a mesh bag to allow for air circulation, preventing moisture buildup and sprouting. Avoid refrigeration, as cold temperatures can alter the sweet potato’s flavor and texture. Additionally, keep them away from onions and other ethylene-producing fruits and vegetables to prevent premature spoilage. Regularly check for any signs of decay or softening, and use the potatoes within a few weeks to ensure they remain fresh and flavorful.
