Does anyone know of any place in SF that sells Okinawan Sweet Potatoes? I got back from Hawaii recently and I'm hooked on the purple goodness!
Last weekend I bought some at Nijiya in San Francisco to make purple sweet potato lattes.
Is Okinawan sweet potato the same as japanese sweet potato? i buy them weekly at farmer's market in the south bay. and these days asian growers are harvesting them so it should be available in other markets.
Sweet potatoes labeled "Japanese" are usually white inside and "Okinawan" ones are purple inside.
ah. thank you. how do they differ in taste?
"purple sweet potato latkes"...those sound wild.
Ooh, thanks! I'll go check out Nijiya.
I'm in S. Bay & have seen them @ Nijiiya, and Marukai markets.
They sometimes have them at Berkeley Bowl, but I haven't seen them lately.
