    Beautiful picture. Reminds me of the street vendors I encountered when I was in Shanghai a few months back.

    Hope you have a wonderful WW. I’ve posted my contribution here and hope you drop by for a look around:

    I use to buy these from guys using a 55 gallon oil drum for roasting. The smell was heavenly.

    You can do this at home in your oven. It’s easy. It just takes time. The real trick is to leave your sweet potatoes out to dry for a month. Don’t put it in your fridge. And bake it at 300F till done. Remember to put a pan underneath to catch the dripping – it is pure sugar.

    Oh, the small yellow ones are better than the big red ones. Dryer and sweeter.

    Wow! Thanks everyone for commenting! Visiting blogspot blogs is sometimes difficult here in China. I’ve tried to leave comments on some of your blogs, others I have not been able to!

    Miscel – thanks for the tip, if I had an oven, I’d try it! 😉
