Choosing Sweet Potatoes
- White stringy "beards"
They're kind of like the playground bully; they look tough, but they're actually quite fragile. Any sort of cut or bruise can make them spoil quickly.
No need to pre-cook them. It can go into your juicer raw.
- Wash and scrub well with a vegetable brush (you can optionally peel it instead).
- Cut into 1" cubes to make it easier on your juicer.
