Sweet potatoes are a Thanksgiving staple, but there are limitless ways to cook these hearty tubers — with or without marshmallow topping. Loaded withsweet tater pie potassium, half your daily recommended intake of vitamin C and nearly 250 percent of the daily recommended intake of vitamin A, these healthy sweet potato recipes will help you eat tasty, nutritious food this fall. When properly harvested, cured and stored, sweet potatoes can last you all winter long — that’s right, sweet potato pie for all those snowy, wintry days.

The most basic way to prepare sweet potatoes is to scrub the skins clean, then prick with a fork and roast in a 400-degree-Fahrenheit oven until soft, around 30 to 40 minutes. Alternately, you can boil either whole or roughly cut sweet potatoes until fork tender. Top with butter, spices, mash with milk and butter, or puree for the basis of several of the following recipes. For a quick treat, cut your sweet potatoes into wedges, toss with olive oil, salt and pepper, and roast on baking sheet to make homemade sweet potato fries.

You could try using a potatoe trap. Just cut a potato in half and push a stick through the middle. Bury the potato just under the soil so that the stick stands up out of the soil. After a day or two, pull the traps out and dispose of the wireworms. Another remedy is to dig in African marigolds which repel many insects. Good luck!
