The 2020 Holidays Recipe Collection
How you doin’? Many people are never sure whether to serve mashed potatoes or yams (sweet potatoes) for their Thanksgiving Day feast. Either works for me. Since your oven and range top are probably going to be tied up with a multitude of other foods you may need to cook your spuds in the Instant Pot. Once your sweet potatoes are ready, you can enjoy them however you'd prefer—mashed, in sweet potato casserole with marshmallows, or simply with a little butter and brown sugar. Any way you decide to cook them they will be a treat for family and friends.
Have you ever wondered where sweet potatoes came from? Sweet potatoes originated in Central and South America. But archaeologists have found prehistoric remnants of sweet potatoes in Polynesia from about A.D. 1000 to A.D. 1100, according to radiocarbon dating. Scientists have hypothesized that those ancient samples came from the western coast of South America.
Scientists believe that sweet potato was domesticated thousands of years ago in Central America. After his first voyage to the Americas in 1492, Christopher Columbus took sweet potatoes back home to Spain and eventually to all of Europe. So now you know the rest of the story.
