I lived my entire life (70+years) thinking 'sweet potatoes' were orange - until I moved to Southern California from the East Coast and discovered the Hayman - what a treat - these are all I buy now for mashed or 'smashed' potatoes. They mash VERY easily - require NO milk or cream - they readily accept olive oil if butter is not allowed - and go with everything. Salt and pepper and you're done. Every time I serve them, I am asked what they are and for second helpings. Yea!!!
