I used to avoid sweet potatoes as a child, mostly because they came out of a can. When I heard of the many health benefits, I began trying fresh sweet potatoes with my husband. Now we enjoy fries topped with cinnamon sugar or cayenne pepper. We've also discovered how awesome they are with blue cheese. —Katrina Krumm, Apple Valley, Minnesota
