A method of storing sweet potatoes

A method of storing sweet potatoes

E. Afr. agric. J, 8: 73

Sweet potatoes can be stored for 2 years or more if treated as follows. The tubers are dug and wilted for 2 or 3 days, then placed in cold water, brought to the boil and kept boiling for an hour. They are then removed, cooled and either sliced lengthways into 3 or 4 pieces, or squeezed out as flat as possible with the fingers, and afterwards dried brick hard in the sun. They are now ready for storing, no special storage vessels being required.
