Worthington Farmers Market: January 14th
Taste Education: Sweet Potatoes
Kitchen boredom setting in? Want to try something new? Curious for a new recipe? New in 2017, the Worthington Farmers Market will host a once monthly "Taste Education" event where we will inspire healthy eating, and connect you with your food and its producer(s). This series will reflect the diversity of our ingredients and the creativity of our dedicated volunteers who prepare them. Samples, recipes, printed information, or the raw ingredients themselves may be a few ways you'll enjoy our "Taste Education" series.
This month, it's all about the sweet potato. As one of the few cultivated vegetable crops that originated in the Americas, the sweet potato has been traced back to Peru as early as 8000 B.C. It is regenerated from plants or sprouts called "slips" that come from the previous season's crop, or from vine cuttings. The nutritional value of sweet potatoes is ranks highly. They are rich in complex carbohydrates, dietary fiber and beta-carotene, while having moderate contents of other micronutrients, including vitamin B5, vitamin B6 and manganese. Healthy and delicious? Yes, please!
