Batatas - Part of National Nutrition Month
Thursday, 12 March 2015 16:07

For our second week of National Nutrition Month, we’ll be taking a look at the delicious Batata.

Batatas (from the original Taíno batata) or sweet potatoes are used in a wide variety of Puerto Rican and Caribbean cuisine including in sancocho, pasteles, and batatas al almibar boricua among many others. 1 cup of batatas is 114 calories and provides 12% of the daily recommended potassium, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Calcium, Iron, Vitamin B-6 and Magnesium. 

We’ll have batatas at our farmstand this Fall so feel free to stop by and enjoy some for $1.
