COLD SWEET POTATO SOUP

Cider Beans, Wild Greens & Dandelion Jelly
by Joan E. Aller

This recipe is a nice twist on the traditional vichyssoise. Native to the Americas, sweet potatoes are very common in the mountains and throughout the South. One can find sweet potato as the main ingredient in almost every cooking category. George Washington Carver can be thanked for the popularity of this wonderful-tasting vegetable. It was the Tuskegee Institute, where he did his research, that promoted the crop to aid farmers in the southern region who were having difficulties. This soup can also be served warm. Don't be surprised if this becomes one of your favorites.
Serves 6


INGREDIENTS

    • 4 large sweet potatoes, quartered
    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter or margarine
    • 1 medium sweet onion, chopped
    • 1 cup shredded carrots
    • 1/2 cup finely chopped celery
    • 2½ cups chicken broth
    • Pinch of ground nutmeg
    • Salt
    • 1/4 cup half-and-half
