Sweet Potato What Now?!
One of my favorite things to do in a grocery store is visit the produce section and find a vegetable or fruit I have never seen or heard of. Sometimes it happens by accident, and other times I make a point to scale the aisles of exotic peppers, sapute, casaba melons and all those things I wouldn’t consider very…traditional in my home.
This time I saw something called “sweet potatoes bonata”. Hairy, brown and small, it sure didn’t look anything like a sweet potato. It looked more like an oblong coconut, frankly.
As soon as I got the chance, I Googled and Wikipediad (yes, Web sites can turn into verbs) the phrase “sweet potatoes bonata” and I have to say, my findings this time around were not very helpful. There was no entry on Wikipedia and the best I could do on Google was this link that tells me sweet potato bonatas are yellow sweet potatoes often used in Spanish chicken noodle soup.
Anyone else have more information on sweet potatoes bonata?!
