fried sweet potatoes: uganda style / by Maranie Staab

i met this young woman while exploring the city of soroti. i was trying to get a look at what she and the other women were doing and upon approaching her she warmly explained that they were making friend sweet potatoes. who knew? not only are sweet potatoes a different color in uganda (more white or pale yellow like a regular potato), but they are also just as if not more delicious. i bought four huge pieces for less than $1USD.
