Sweet Potatoes on sale = sweet potato pie

Sweet Potatoes are .20/# and to me that means it's time to make and freeze some Sweet Potato pies &, Mashed Sweet Potatoes. Sweet Potatoes are low on the diabetic glycemic index and I will make a low fat edition of this pie & a homemade crust for us to enjoy all year long!

Great minds think alike! I stocked up on sweet potatoes to enjoy most of the winter. Last year I kept a little more than a bushel in a crate in my pantry and they lasted fairly well until spring. The few that sprouted were given to my daughter to plant for more sweet potatoes. This year, I think I'll freeze at least half of what I have.
