Candied Japanese sweet potato

Suppose to be so chilly tomorrow as usual.  It seems like the autumn has quite arrived at Boston.  In autumn, I really get the urge to eat Japanese sweet potatoes which is a little moisture, seems to soft and be smooth.  In Japan, we can get really tasty one especially in autumn!

It has really sweet taste so you don't have to add so much sugar when you cook it.  Even just bake is totally fine and taste so good!  Also it has a lot of vitamins and fiber.  That's why it is got attention as a healthy ingredients and people, especially young women,  love it!

Fortunately, I could find it at one Japanese grocery store!  I think you can find at asian grocery store or even some grocery store does have.  I highly recommend to try it when you find!

Actually I was so tired because I helped a Japanese festival all the day.  But this sweet potato made me invigorate a lot!  It seemed like just I needed something sweets, haha, I am simple :)   I made this maybe too much amount so I'll make some sweets with candied sweet potato.  Can be so tasty!!
