Sweet potatoes pack a huge nutritional wallop, not to mention they are a delicious addition to any meal. And did you know that in 2021 Gov. Kay Ivey proclaimed the sweet potato Alabama’s official state vegetable? Thanks to the hard work of some homeschooled students in North Alabama, the Legislature recognized the tasty tuber with the honor.

Sweet potato crops bring in about $9 million to the state annually, according to the Alabama Farmers Federation. Alabama Living readers are big fans, as they sent in more recipes for sweet potatoes than any other topic this year.
