Japan’s sweet potatoes really are “sweet

The other day I used a pressure cooker to cook up a dish with some sweet potatoes (サツマイモ) that I bought from the grocer.

In just 20 minutes the sweet potatoes that only cost me 200 yen were tasting appropriately "sweet"!

I didn't use any sugar or water in preparing these sweet potatoes. I just popped them into the pressure cooker for 20 minutes and steamed them for 10 minutes. Even so, I really think that Japanese sweet potatoes do have special sweetness.

    I agree with this message! There is a sweet potato dessert that I get from 7-Eleven and it is delicious!
