I finally got the time to can some of my organic purple sweet potatoes. It was a good thing because some of them are sprouting already. In Florida this happens often and that is why I am canning them. I haven’t eaten them yet and am hoping they will taste good.
The recipe I used said to use 11 lbs of potatoes for 9 pints. I actually ended up with 13 pints and a couple of small ones left over. It also said to bake, steam, or boil the potatoes before peeling and canning. I have decided I will not do that next time. I will just peel, cut and can.
I used a light syrup to pack the potatoes which was 6 cups of water to 2 cups of sugar, I had to make 2 recipes. I pressure canned them at 11 lbs for 65 minutes.
If you have canned purple sweet potatoes I would love to hear what your results were.
