That's great! You could start doing those kind of things on the side, like cooking classes, etc.

We have a number of bbq buddies who do that. They hold cooking classes to show people how to cook bbq or cook for competitions. Make the class to fit whatever your focus is. You might could start out using your church, VFW, etc. Just a thought.

Super, Goodweed! Wish I was there to see it! By the way, why do folk (anyone chime in here) feel the need to add any kind of sugar to sweet potatoes? To me they are sweet enough as is.

Claire; I too love sweet potatoes just as they are. At home, I only dress them on my plate, after baking them, with a bit of butter. But I know many people who don't like them at all. I can usually alter that view by showing how versatile they are. Just as flavorings are added to regular potatoes, by adding things like ginger, allspice, cloves, cinamon, and sweeteners, or even salt & pepper, to sweet potatoes, you alter the basic flavor and create something new. It also keeps them from becoming boring. Though I love them just as they are, were I to have them daily, I would have to change up the recipe as I'm not one of those people who can eat the same thing twice in one week. I need variety.

Also, different varieties of the tubor have varying degrees of sweetness. some are amost syrupy, while others are bland and very starchy in both texture and taste. So, changing the sweetness may be required due to the particular type of sweet potato available in an area.
