Today's dish is Patat a Let. This is a meal traditionally eaten in the evening before bed. It is aso a very quick meal, and I am a huge fan of quick meals. I love Patat a Let. My mom made some for me last week, but as is custom with a lot of Haitians, it was too sweet and I was unable to finish it all. Delicious and filling, but too sweet. I also found a new Haitian recipe website, it's called Cooking With Madame Sara. Really great site, check it out.
You will need:
Sweet potatoes, not the American kind but the ones called batata, condensed milk, ginger, star anise, cinnamon and cinnamon.
Peel your sweet potatoes in a shallow bowl or pot of water.
Rinse off, and put to boil with cinnamon and star anise.
Peel and grate a piece of ginger into the sweet potatoes.
Cook the sweet potatoes thoroughly but do not let them become mushy. Once the potatoes are cooked, remove 3/4's of the water and pour in your condensed milk. Add sugar according to your liking.
