Re: [IP] Sweet Potatoes



I don't know the answer; but my mother used to preserve potatoes by
covering them in water until ready to cook.  I would think it should work
with sweet potatoes or yams.  You may also want to try looking at
www.dlife.com at their recipes.  You may ask your question there also.
 Goof luck.
