How to Freeze Sweet Potatoes

Did you know many consider sweet potatoes to be one of the most nutritious vegetables we eat? They are high in numerous vitamins and minerals, specifically antioxidants Vitamin A and C.  These nutrients are best absorbed with a little healthy fat.  You can read more about the nutritional content of sweet potatoes here.

Now is the time to stock up on sweet potatoes.  They are normally $.98/lb at Wal-Mart but they are currently $.28 per pound at Wal-Mart and $.25 per pound at Meijer.  In the past, Wal-Mart has kept that pricing through the holidays, so it’s not too late to get in on the deal.  I like to buy large quantities, cook them and freeze them for later.  In fact, I just picked up about 22 pounds for $6.
