With it being fall now, grocery stores cannot often accept the surplus that comes from local farms, so make a welcome spot for them in your home. In a cool, dark place, sweet potatoes can last up to a month, making them a welcome staple to any pantry. Also, if you can’t get to your sweet potatoes soon enough, cook them and freeze them! Your peeled and chopped scraps can always be  a welcome addition to compost. No sweet potato shall be left  behind. Now that you know what to do with your sweet potatoes, go forth and savor.
