Okay I skimmed through the entire thread and found nothing with a raw sweet potato in it.

I have ate raw sweet potatoes for years.

The next time you decide to make a coleslaw or something you would normally put a carrot in grate up sweet potato instead.

Carrot raisin salad you can substitute with sweet potato also.

How about some sweet potato in a fresh garden salad.
There are many uses for the RAW sweet potato.:yes:

Just a few thoughts.

Good suggestion. Jicama is also a good addition grated.

I have really enjoyed sweet potato pancakes. Use just cut you flour mixture (i use bisquick) in half and use peeled,cooked, mashed sweet potato for the other half. So good!

i have also adapted the same formula to make sweet potato bread and sweet potato pound cake.

Spicy Sweet Potato Fries
 
The spices are somewhat on the Indian side of things and when these baked fries are dipped in the sauce, they're pretty addictive. I like to briefly toast the seeds in a small pan before grinding. I usually make a quadruple batch of the spice mix and keep it in a jar for quick later use.

1 tsp coriander seeds
1/2 tsp fennel seeds
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp salt
2 lbs sweet potatoes (about 4 medium), peeled and cut into wedges
2 TBS canola oil

[B]Mayo Dip:[/B]
1 1/4 cup mayo
2 TBS lime juice
2 TBS minced fresh cilantro (can use dried in a pinch. Just let sit longer to flavor up)
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp ground mustard
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/8 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

1. In a small bowl, combine the dip ingredients and put in the refrigerator to chill.

2. In a spice grinder or with a mortar and pestle, combine the first four ingredients into a powder and then stir in the salt.

3. In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, oil and ground spices; toss to coat.

4. Transfer potatoes to a greased 15"x10"x1" baking sheet and bake uncovered for 30-35 minutes until crisp and golden brown, flipping wedges over occasionally.

Serve wedges with the mayo dip.

[/B][/U]4 Cups of grated raw peeled sweet poatoes
2 Cups of sugar
2 cups of whole milk
2 Eggs
2 tsp. of vanilla

[LEFT]Mix all ingredients together. Put in a 9 x 13 pan. Dot with 1 whole stick of butter. Bake in a 350* oven approximately
1 1/2 hours uncovered. That time is give or take. Stir 2 or 3 times to keep from burning.

I thought there was a bunch of pie/pudding recipes for sweet potatoes on tville but it took a while to find any, this being the first, so I am trying it. I did add pumpkin pie spices of the usual clove nutmeg ginger and cinnamon. And cut the butter in half. But I like the simplicity, 4 2 2 2 2. Taste great going in.

good pudding recipe
 
That's a nice recipe. Wonderful texture to it. I plan to make that many times. I added pumpkin spices, which for me is:
1/4 t cloves
1/2 t nutmeg
1 t ginger
1-1/2 t or 2 t cinnamon


May drop the sugar to 1-1/2 c next time, but it was pretty good with 2 c.


It took about 65 minutes at 350f in convection oven, then dropped to 300 for 15 minutes more. Stirred many times. Next time, probably set to lower temp for this oven.
