Weekly Open Thread Just Discovered Sweet Potato Butter

Posted By on Fri, Jul 30, 2010 at 6:51 AM

You know how a food finds you when you're ready for it? Sweet potato butter just crossed my path, and now I'm going to have to eat it for every meal.

Cunningham Farms sweet potato butter is just organic sweet potatoes, apple cider, cinnamon and cloves, but that doesn't do it justice. It's good on everything: toast and pancakes, a thin layer on a ham sandwich with spicy mustard, glazed over grilled chicken. As a substitute for carrots in carrot cake, in blond brownies, as a souffle, paired with aged manchego. And it's just $6 for 10 ounces, which is pretty reasonable as handmade, small-batch products go.

It's made in Hancock County, which provides jobs in that economically challenged area of Appalachia. It's a super-double good thing.

Share your food finds and other news here on our weekly open thread.
