My 7.3# organic sweet potato recipe
I harvested this sweet potato last Saturday and saved it specifically for a Slow Food Charleston Harvest Festival Potluck.  A prize worthy sweet potato such as this one deserved an equally show stopping recipe and I definitely found it when I made this sweet potato pone recipe yesterday afternoon. I wanted to also feature this recipe on the blog since it's been forever since I've added a new post (very busy starting an edible landscape business called Urban Veggucation) and one of the key ingredients besides the sweet potato was organic coconut milk I bought for a song using my faithful food coupons.

Anywho, I'm posting the illustrated version of the recipe here but you can go to my International recipes page for the full written recipe.

Sweet Potato Filling
4 cups coconut milk
1 cup skim milk
4 cups fresh grated sweet potatoes (skin on)
2 cups mashed sweet potato
2 Tbsp grated fresh orange zest
Juice from 1/2 navel orange
1/2 stick butter, cubed
6 medium sized fresh eggs (4-5 large eggs would work)
3 cups sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp rum flavor
3/4 cups unsweetened coconut (Earth Fare)

Dump Cake crumb topping
1/3 box dry yellow cake mix
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
1/4 cup whole oats
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
ground cinnamon to taste
1/2 stick butter, cubed
Butter flavor cooking spray
