dried sweet potatoes?
a friend shared some store-bought dried veggies, and strewn among the crunchy dessicated tubers were these thick soft-orange strips and wedges. they had an almost floral flavor, sort of like dried papaya but barely sweet. and they had an elastic, chewy texture, slightly softer than dried mango. i had a hard time participating in the conversation, they were so good.
after she left, i googled dried sweet potatoes. all i got were recipes for vegan dog treats. yuck.
so -- has anybody else tried these?
can you make them at home?
where can you buy them?
you can find them in Chinese grocery stores, probably in the same section as the dried mango, dried pineapples..etc. Yes, they can be good, and strangely addictive.
I may have even seen them in Japanese grocery stores. Actually, the Japanese also have them, but slightly different.
