Soon after it was introduced into Okinawa in 1605, sweet potato became the main staple of the Okinawans. Okinawa Sweet Potatoes are tan in color; similar to a russet potato, but once cut open this variety is very different. The inside of the Okinawa Sweet Potato is a bright magenta color; very surprising, yet pleasing to the eye. The Okinawa Sweet Potatoes are also called Japanese sweet potatoes. Enjoy these potatoes baked, roasted, boiled, steamed, candied, scalloped, or mashed.
