Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Sweet potatoes were popular food at our house in the South. They are available all year but are harvested in November and December. They were a mainstay at our family’s table during thanksgiving when Mama would make several sweet potato pies. Throughout the year she always had a side dish of candied yams or sweet potatoes to accompany many of our dinner meals.
