    Okinawan sweet potato appreciation

    They are the new beets; sweet, purple and oh so deliscioso. I've been on an Okinawan sweet potato kick for the past 6 months or so and I still can't get enough. Mixed some in with my Thai green curry for dinner. BAM!

    Sounds great. Where do you get it from?

    The skin looks pretty thick for a sweet potato. I checked and they are not availible at the local market. Later this week I'll be close to a 'whole paycheck' market and will look there.
    With green curry sounds delicious. I have yet to assemble a true spice box.

    Most asian supermarkets carry them. I buy mine at the commissary.

    Yeah, the skin is fairly thick; need to peel 'em until the purple color is just peaking through. Well worth the effort as the texture and taste is unlike anything.

    I've had them and can get them at a local market bordering the city. Your recipe sounds great.
