In Haiti, "Po patat pa monte tab" (the sweet potato skin does not reach the dinner plate) it is instead cleaned off and fed to the dog.
Are sweet potato skins safe to eat?
I did some research and discovered that when you eat the skin of the sweet potato, you will add more fiber, potassium and beta carotene to your diet.
According to livestrong.com, A medium sized sweet potato baked with the skin has 542 milligrams of potassium.
My Haitian cousins kept laughing at me because I eat my "PATAT" (potato) with the "PO" (skin), so I share this information with them and they stil say: "Mwen menm, m pap manje patat ak po papa!"
Do you eat your "patat ak po?"
