  • 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.

Sakaide-shi is famous for the production of Kansho in the prefecture, and was used as a salt field in the past. It seems that the coarse sand found on the former site of Shioda in Sakaide is very suitable for potato cultivation. It is dug up early in early July in early July, so it is called "early excavation". In Sakaide, it is cultivated by tunnel mulching.
