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

Thanks for reaching out Barry,

Sorry the (dessert and) I missed you on Sunday night. That sweet potato pone took longer that I expected to bend to my will. Next time I'll know how to handle it. Can't wait to hear how you like the finished product. Maybe for the next Slow Foods Charleston get together, I'll bring a small dish that only you, Dena and I will know about:) Have a good night!

These products in this little store are things that I would have loved to have as I traveled or developed a heart for going to be love.

Fresh vegetables and fruits are essential for a stout health because a healthy mind lives in a healthy body. Thus to remain healthy we need to take fresh vegetables and fruits in our regular meals.

With Christmas on the way this is the perfect time to get a good detox going meaning you can really feast out over Christmas without gaining a tonne of weight come the New Year. One obstacle however is staying stacked up with the right foods to keep you in check when you're running low during the cold winter months and when you have to resort to a home delivery meal, low calorie healthy meals for dieters are few and far between.
