Sweet Potato Pork Dumplings
– In Sweden, Sötpotatis Kroppkakor
What is it that makes these dumplings so outstanding?
So irresistible you have to take another?
So delectable you’ve lost count of how many you’ve eaten?
The magic of sweet potato:
Have you made dumplings before? If you haven’t, let me begin by telling you it’s easy! There’s absolutely nothing complicated or impossible about making your own delicious dumplings. And sure, you could stick with the status quo and make fantastic white potato dumplings (I’ve even included the recipe below). But if you’d like to blow the competition away, then put your white potatoes aside. And enter the era of the sweet potato.
