Several years ago, Adam Hainer from Juniper Hill Farm in Essex County, NY (population 39,000) brought us samples of his “fingerling” sweet potatoes. We tried them and they were absolutely fabulous! Adam explained that a large portion of his sweet potato crop is too small for sale to the grocery market. For large commercial growers, culled product runs at about 30%. He came up with the idea of calling these scraggly babies fingerling sweet potatoes. For those of you who are newbies to Adam’s fingerling sweet potatoes you’re about to enter a new food dimension, which is tasty and helps save the world.
