Sweet potato pie is a southern dessert, and a traditional dish at Thanksgivings table. From where I am from, people are not usually seeing sweet potato as a pie filling. We deep fry it as French fry, steam it, cook it in sugar syrup, or roast it in a small coal pit. The smell of fresh roasted sweet potato is really attempting, you will want to eat them while they are still piping hot. Next time, you should try to put the roasted potato in the refrigerator and eat them cold, you will find out that the flesh become a little chewy and sticky, very yummy.

Sweet potato is a health food, it is high in fiber, low in sodium and cholesterol, also fat free and a good source of Vitamin B6, A and C. If you are going to eat more dessert, have the health one!
