1 teaspoon of vanilla
Mix well and pour into pyrex dish about 2 inches deep, usually square or rectangular.

YUMMMMMMM That sounds good.
I always make something called Sweet Potato Pudding for Thanksgiving. It's kind of like shredded carmalized sweet potatoes. I LOVE THANKSGIVING. Always have a house full.
Thank God for MIL's and their recipes. My MIL took me by the arm when I was still a mere baby (21) and taught me to cook. She was an Italian immigrant so needless to say, she forced me into being a good cook. Nothing less would do for her son.

My MIL taught me to cook southern food. I love Italian food! YOU are a lucky WOMAN! I have learned to write all of my recipes and sources so that I can pass them on to my children. I am always asking and quizzing them on how and what I am doing in the kitchen.

Sweet Potato Pudding

4 Cups of grated raw peeled sweet poatoes
2 Cups of sugar
2 cups of whole milk
2 Eggs
2 tsp. of vanilla

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.

You know it's done when it has thickened and turned a caramel color.

I love sweet potatoes! I just dug mine up out of the pots I grow them in the other day. The recipes sound fantastic. Here's one I make for the luau I do for my husband Gary's family every year. I took a recipe I found and made it better(I think.) Terry, this goes with Meat On A Stick!

Aloha Sweet Potatoes

  • 4-5 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • pinch salt
  • shredded coconut


Peel, cube, and boil sweet potatoes until done. Drain well. Add all the ingredients except the shredded coconut and mix together like making regular mashed potatoes. Add a touch more coconut milk if it seems too stiff. Put into a casserole dish and keep warm in oven until serving time. Or make the day before and reheat in oven. Sprinkle with shredded coconut right before serving.(The shredded coconut will absorb the color of the potatoes if topped ahead of time. Nothing is wrong with that; it just doesn't look as pretty.)

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.

Default 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.

Sweet Potato Tarts

Try these light and low-fat personal pies for dessert during the fall. They're a great substitute for pumpkin pie or sweet potato casserole.

INGREDIENTS
8 oz phyllo dough, thawed
2 c sweet potato, steamed or roasted, flesh only
1/2 c dark brown sugar
1/2 t salt
1/2 t pumpkin pie spice mix, plus additional 1/2 t for dusting
1/4 c low-fat evaporated milk
1 t vanilla
1/2 c egg substitute or 2 egg whites
1/2 c fat free whipped topping

DIRECTIONS
• Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

• Spray 24 mini muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray.
• Remove phyllo dough from packaging.
• Slice into 1 inch strips, then cut each strip into 2 inch segments.

• Using 3 layers at a time, fill the cups, spraying cooking spray between each layer.
• Repeat process three times.

• Remove skin from sweet potatoes and allow to cool to room temperature.
• Place sweet potatoes, sugar, spice mix, milk, and vanilla in the bowl of a food processor.
• Blend until smooth.
• Add eggs and blend just to incorporate.

• Fill cups to the top of the muffin pan.
• Bake 18-20 minutes, until custard is set and pastry starts to brown.

• Once cooled, top with 1 teaspoon of fat-free whipped topping and a dusting of pumpkin pie spice mix.

Makes 12 servings (two tarts per serving).

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.

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.
