Honey Sweet Potato, Cilembu

Hi, long time no blog. Because nothing interesting in my life lately, just had lot of classes, bunch of homeworks. One day, i decided to had one day off to helped my friend doing her research about Ubi Cilembu or Cilembu Sweet Potato which is honey potato. Why honey? because when you roast it for 1-2 hours, there’s honey pop out from the skin of it.

Because my friend was doing research for this potatoes, the seller was kind and gave us a lot of roasted potatoes for free. They were below standard potatoes, but it still good, and we enjoyed it so much.

Here are the fresh potatoes right from the oven, hot and nice. Can you see the skin was brown because caramelized and tasted like honey. The nearer from the skin the better, the skin is the best, lot of sugar (honey). And the potato itself sweet as the skin. I dont know how they grow this kind of potato, but its one of my fav snack and good friend for cup tea in rainy day.

Thing that you must know about this potatoes :

1. Dont boil it. Because its not sweet. Because the liquid inside potato doesnt caramelized. I’ve tried, and it wasnt sweet.

2. Roast it for 1-2 hour in oven.

3. Dont roast fresh potatoes, because the older the better, you have to store it at least 3 months. Because the liquid inside the potatoes are still developing (getting sweeter) after you harvest it from soil.

4. Dont pick the smelly one. Because that is bitter.

Okay that all my story about honey potatoes, i hope you interest with it. Fantastic!
