Satsumaimo or Japanese sweet potato, has a soft and flaky texture and a sweet flavor. Enjoy baked satsumaimo, or make tempura or dessert with it. The fiber in satsumaimo promotes your digestive system.
Satsumaimo becomes sweeter when cooked because the starch in satsumaimo transforms into sugar. It is easy to microwave sweet potatoes, but this method will not make the potatoes as sweet as conventional cooking methods. For the maximum sweetness, heat it up to 65℃ - 75℃ and cook thoroughly.
