      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      If you like your potatoes sweet try these!

      I absolutely love sweet potatoes! As someone who isn't all that keen on potatoes I do really enjoy these and love them baked and chipped and stuff and eat them more often than regular versions of tatties!

      The Packaging....

      Clear plastic bag with a white and orange label on the front of it. I'm told they are Sainsbury's 'Basics' Sweet Potatoes 'All shapes and sizes' and I', told how to store them, the display and best before date are given, I'm told the weight of the bag is 800g and that they are grown in the USA and there is a bar-code on there. On the inside of that label I'm given nutritional information and I'm told how to cook them. Cheap packaging this is to look at but the packaging does give enough information on it. With these packs it's the weight you get so you can get anywhere between 4-6 potatoes in here depending on the size of them.

      How To Cook:

      To Steam:
      Steam for 5 minutes until tender.

      To Oven Cook:
      Cut into chunks, drizzle with oil and cook in a hot oven for 20-30 minutes.

      To Heat In The Hob:
      Cut into chunks and heat on a moderate heat for 15-20 minutes.

      Microwave:
      4-6 minutes.

      The Potatoes....

      These are as good quality as any sweet potatoes you can pay alot more for in my humble opinion. They of course possess a reddish coloured skin and are a bright orange inside and cooking them (as directed) is simple. I personally bake mine in the oven or microwave (after washing them) and I have baked them in the oven with a drizzle of olive oil.

      They are great! They taste like sweet potatoes of course, are not too fibrous or rooty and give off a nice natural sweet smell. They are best baked (in the oven) if you don't like soggy potatoes and they hold best this way. however if you don't mind them a little soggy then bang them in the microwave by all means!

      They are not good for mashing cos they go to water but saying that most sweet potatoes do in my opinion due to their water content but you can chip them and fry them well enough!

      All round these are what they are! They are easy to clean, easy to cook and have a really nice taste to them! They are that simple!
