It is rich in Vitamin C and fibers. You can bake, deep fry or simply steam them. It is good when you enhance its sweetness. Or leave it a cut side down in a plate of shallow water and enjoy beautiful green leaves come out in few weeks.
I used Satsuma-Imo in Minestrone soup with 9 garden vegetables. It emphasizes sweetness of vegetables. Autumn Minestrone $8.
Satsuma-Imo & Cream Cheese Pie for two. Steam Satsuma-Imo and Sieve, mix Cream Cheese and Honey, fill in a pie shell and bake. It tastes like an apple. Wonder why? $7.
It is a season for Satsuma-Imo. You can find all kinds of Yam and Sweet Potato in the market. Japanese Yam, Garnet Yam, White Sweet Potato, Purple Sweet Lord and such. Actually, Yam and Sweet Potato belong to different family. The listed here are actually all sweet potato. Confusing! Nonetheless Sweet Potato, Satsuma-Imo and such, is not only sweet and tasty but also is rich in vitamin C and dietary fiber. How should I use it? Will see.
