Step-by-Step Holiday Recipe

A staple at your Thanksgiving dinner, sweet potatoes are a tasty and nutritious vegetable to enjoy throughout the entire season!  These potatoes are loaded with vitamins, nutrients, dietary fiber and antioxidants.  Choose sweet potatoes that are firm and do not have any cracks, bruises or soft spots.  Sweet potatoes should be stored in a cool, dark and well-ventilated place, where they will keep fresh for up to ten days.

You can enjoy sweet potatoes at every meal – from breakfast to dessert!  You can find many recipes on our H3 Recipe page, but today Chef Jen takes you through step-by-step picture instructions to create this quick and easy side-dish – Rosemary Roasted Sweet Potatoes.
