I am always so happy to see bushels of fresh fall vegetables at the store! My husband has been asking about sweet potatoes for a few weeks now. When I saw these at 49 cents a pound, I splurged--I'll wait until they dip to 35 cents a pound for the big stock up, usually closer to Thanksgiving. My personal favorite is the turnip. It's such a uniquely beautiful vegetable. If you don't believe me, flip through the Graham Rust illustrations in your library's copy of The Fine Art of Dining.I love its sweet and slightly bitter flavor. Unsure how to cook them?
