Summertime is picnic time!

Going out for a picnic is all about having a good time with friends and family while enjoying the outdoors. Usually everyone brings some treats and appetizers to share that are spread out on the picnic blanket. Typically, these meals can be comfortably passed around without spilling and do not need to be reheated. American sweet potatoes are the perfect picnic food as they taste great cold and are easily prepared. Simply bake the tubers in the oven until their done, meaning the overall preparation does not require much active working time. They can be baked as desired for example as a whole, in cubes or slices. In addition, already cooked sweet potatoes can be stored in the fridge for several days. This way they can be prepared in advance to the picnic. The orange tubers can be then added to any dish like salads or sandwiches. American sweet potatoes are a must-have in any picnic basket!
