National Cook a Sweet Potato Day History

Billions of people eat sweet potatoes all over the world, but especially in America. This is a very adaptable sweet root vegetable that can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or as a snack in salads and soups. The starchy tuberous roots of the vegetable are its most vital component. Still, the shoots and leaves are edible as well. While many American colonists in the Southeast ate raw sweet potatoes, cooking them can improve their digestibility and nutritional value.

Since both sweet potatoes and common potatoes are members of the Solanales order, they are distant cousins. It is thought that Polynesia was the home of sweet potato cultivation prior to Western exploration. Subsequently, it is said that they have spread to South or Central America, usually by way of vine cuttings rather than seeds. It’s thought that sweet potatoes were domesticated about 5,000 years ago in Central America. The remains of Peruvian sweet potatoes discovered in South America have been observed to be from 8000 B.C.

Sweet potatoes were brought from Luzon to the Chinese province of Fujian in 1594. Governor Chin Hsüeh-Tseng (Jin Xuezeng) further encouraged growing sweet potatoes. In 2019, there were 92 million metric tons of sweet potatoes produced worldwide. With 56% of global production, China was the leader in this category.

Why is National Cook a Sweet Potato Day so much fun?

They are extremely good.

Sweet potatoes have a lot of health benefits. They are low in calories and fat and high in fiber. In addition to a wealth of minerals and vitamins, they also contain higher levels of vitamins A and C. Additionally, they contain a lot of beta-carotene, an antioxidant that aids in shielding the body from harmful free radicals.

Utilized for a variety of reasons

Sweet potatoes serve additional functions besides just food. In South America, red sweet potato juice is frequently combined with lime juice to create a fabric dye. In fact, different shades ranging from pink to black can be achieved by adjusting the juice’s proportions.

Advantageous to fish

Cuttings from sweet potato vines will quickly grow roots in water provided they receive adequate lighting and nutrients. Because of this, they can be used for trailing out of the water with their roots submerged and for in-home aquariums. It draws harmful ammonia and nitrates—a waste product of aquatic life—out of the water, which drives the growth. As a result, this may help fish live in better conditions.
