The sweet potato season is from September to November, but early digging is shipped from late June. It is characterized by the vivid red color of the skin and its good shape. The main production area is Sakaide City. The warm, low-rainfall climate of Setouchi, and the once-popular sandy land of salt fields for salt production, are suitable for potato cultivation.
Sweet potato has long been useful as an energy source comparable to staple food. It is also rich in nutrients such as vitamin C and beta carotene. It is said that a good thing with a beautifully thick and thick skin, and a small one with a small unevenness. If you raise the temperature little by little like a roasted sweet potato, a strong sweetness will be drawn out, and if it is heated in a microwave oven, the sweetness will be hard to come out, but the moisture will evaporate and it will be finished. Recently, sweet potatoes have been introduced into dishes that were generally made with potatoes, such as salads, croquettes, and chips. Utilizing its sweetness, it can be used for sweets such as kintsuba and pies.
