Sometimes my kids tell me that they don’t want foods that are “too sweet.” Um, what about ice cream or Nutella, then? Never mind. The excellent sweet potato, to which I never add anything else sweet, is sometimes scorned just the same.
Last night, I chopped a sweet potato and two small onions. Then I plopped that in a cast iron skillet with some bacon fat (tidily poured through a coffee filter and stored in the fridge). Later I added a minced ginormous clove of garlic. A bit of salt at the table, and no one said it was too sweet. Vary proportions according to what you like. Your mileage may vary.
