There seemed to be a lot of fresh produce on sale this week at the store. We came home with broccoli, turnips, peppers, sweet potatoes, grapes and bananas. Sweet potatoes are not one of our favorite vegetables. I like them alright but Phil doesn't really like them at all. However, sweet potatoes are quite popular here in the South (baked) and came be quite cheap when in season. I have heard about dehydrating them but had never tried it until today. It is pretty simple, just peel, slice, mix up with a little salt and put them in the dehydrator to dry. They taste pretty good though to me they are not as good as dried zucchini snacks but not bad nonetheless. A good healthy snack anyway. I will be taking them to work with me along with my usual jar of homemade yogurt that also got made today.
In other news, I did find the lye for soap making! Yeah! I can't wait to try it again. Need a new thermometer and rubber gloves and maybe a stick blender but then I will be ready.
