USA - Canada - It's The Season For Sweet Potatoes

Now's the time to find delicious local farm grown sweet potatoes at your farmers' markets. Most crops are grown without the use of herbicides and insecticides, and usually, no waxes or fungicides have been used when washing and packaging these local crops.

USA - Check out Penzeys Spices!

A couple of years ago, a friend, and fellow sweet potato lover, introduced me to Penzeys Spices. This company has an awesome selection of high-quality spices, herbs, and seasoning blends. One of the largest mail-order spice companies with over 30 retail stores in the USA, Penzeys has a delicious recipe for Maharajah Mashed Sweet Potatoes in its Fall Catalog. The recipe uses two of Penzeys' popular products -- Sweet Curry Powder and Maharajah Curry Powder which is rich and sweet, but not hot. Go to to access this recipe, to sign up to receive their quarterly catalog, and to see if there's a store near you.
