WRAL reporter Brian Shrader and our own Lisa Prince feature seasonal recipes in their Got to Be Good Cookin’ segment using ingredients grown and available right here in North Carolina. This week’s recipe begins a month of recipes featuring N.C.-grown sweet potatoes. North Carolina produces more sweet potatoes than any other state and it’s the state vegetable.
Taylor Buscemi of Cary took home first place at the 2013 NC State Fair Sweet Potato recipe contest with this creative side dish. Brian notes that Sweet Potato Oranges “turn eyes and will make you happy.”
