Sweet Potato Puree
1 sweet potato
1. When steaming, follow same method as carrot puree. It should look something like this
2. Things get a bit trickier at the blending stage. You will need to blend, add water, blend, add water, blend, add water... until the consistency of the puree is smoooth enough. This is especially the case if you try to blend a large sweet potato like I did. Somehow the larger pieces on top can't sink to the bottom to be blended until I add enough water. Otherwise, it ends up in a gluey mess. So remember to add enough water to make it a smooth paste.
I bought a large sweet potato this time round, managed to make about 18 cubes.
Important things to note
Do note that it is normal for the sweet potatoes to change their colour from light yellow to light green after it's been blended. I think it has something to do with oxidation but I was too lazy to look it up. No worries, they are safe and delicious to eat still.
I've also realised that there are actually many types of sweet potatoes available in the market. I bought the purple skinned japanese sweet potatoes with yellow flesh from vietnam (available in ntuc) and they turned out to be really yummy and delicious. Might try the orange fleshed ones sometime soon. Or might stick with the yellow fleshed ones since already tried and tested to work with Maple.. :)
