I like them, but don't be afraid to add more milk, butter, or salt than is
recommended on the package directions.

I'm not sure they've "come a long way" but it always made sense to add
more milk and butter to make them a bit more smooth. And oh, to maybe
use a small whisk rather than just a fork to flake them.

Mostly the only thing I ever use instant mashed potato flakes for is as
a thickener for soup which is a little too brothy/thin.

Let us know how they are.

Mashed is probably my least-favorite way to have potatoes, though.
I can't remember the last time I bothered to cook them that way.

I had a roasted sweet potato the other day. My understanding is that they sell these on carts in Japan. This one was sold in a cart in a store. Ha ha, that's so weird. It's roasted in a way that causes the potato to get all sugary. Beats me what the process is. The result is a very sweet potato that's covered with caramelized sugar. It's pretty wonderful stuff.

You can buy them from street venders all over NYC. They have push
carts with a coal stove and a pile of sweet potatoes... there they are
called "baked". They are sold during the cold months and are kept in
pockets as hand warmers. A very large baked sweet potato used to cost
a nickle. That's part of our Thanksgiving dinner, baked in our gas
oven on a foil lined sheet pan, without the foil it'd be near
impossible to clean the burnt sugar off the sheet pan. Baked in their
jackets is the only way we eat sweet potatoes. and only once a year on
Thanksgiving.
Different street venders sell roasted chestnuts. I never saw a street
vender selling both chestnuts and sweet potatoes... must be in the
street vender union contract... also only male venders sold sweet
potatoes, only female venders sold chestnuts. There are organ
grinders too, usually old Italian guys puffing guinea stinkers while
cranking out opera tunes, they'd have a dwarf Texass monkey
collecting pennies in a greasy cap.

Parodi and DiNapoli are small machine cigars, still available as of a
couple of years ago. They were often called guinea stinkers and had a
reputation of being very strong- tho I thought they were more on
the mild side back when I did smoke them.

I spent quite a bit of time in NYC studying at AADA, and although hot
chestnut, pretzel, and hotdog vendors were common, I never saw a hot
sweet potato vendor. Now I know why. There weren't any.

https://www.yelp.com/biz/roasted-chestnut-carts-new-york

Only two vendors left?!?!??

Wow.

https://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/chestnut-tradition-toast-n-y-vendors-offer-treat-article-1.473997

Sayed Elshahat, 32, who mans a cart at Fifth Ave. and 39th St., said he
used to start selling chestnuts at $4 a dozen as early as October. Now,
it's just around Christmas.

"Chestnuts are expensive for us," he said. "There is less people buying
them so less vendors are selling them. We can't afford to sell something
nobody is buying."

Roasted chestnuts appear to going the way of baked sweet potatoes,
another once-ubiquitous sidewalk snack that went extinct in the 1950s,
said New York food guru Arthur Schwartz.

"The simple answer is that few people have the taste for roasted
chestnuts. Not Americans anyway - not even New Yorkers," he said. "Hence
the chestnuts are in the touristic areas of the city."

Also, the roasted chestnuts responsible for that fragrant scent wafting
over city streets are imported from Italy, which makes them pricey
street fare, Schwartz said.

"Chestnuts roasting on an open fire is some romantic idea from a song,
but not something to eat," he said.

"It's nostalgic street food," said Sean Basinski of the Urban Justice
Center, which advocates on behalf of the vendors. "I think it smells
better than it tastes."

Joanne Amendola, 60, visiting from Trumbull, Conn., agreed after buying
a bag of nuts at at Fifth Ave. and 46th St. vendor.

My guess is that these are different from NYC street vendor sweet potatoes. They're quite different from any baked potatoes I've ever had. Oddly enough, they taste like pumpkin pie. The Japan store Don Quijote, bought our local supermarket and these carts appeared in the store one day. Ha ha, that's just so weird. They are kind of expensive at 2 for $5 but I'm gonna get me some when I go food shopping.

They appear to be ordinary baked sweet potatoes. They taste like pumpkin
pie because sweet potatoes and pumpkin taste something like each other.

Do you detect any of the usual pumpkin pie spices? Nutmeg, clove, dried ginger,
cinnamon?

There is no pumpkin pie spices in there but the experience is similar - a soft custard-like texture, and and intensely sweet pumpkin taste. Beats me how one gets a potato to have the texture of custard. I think my family is hooked on these Don Quijote sweet potatoes.

The nice thing with sweet potatoes you can get a caramelized outside
and still be soft and moist inside. I cut them into chunks and cook
them along with a roast or chicken parts.

I've baked potatoes before. Everybody has baked potatoes before. My guess is that your baked potatoes don't come out with a custard-like texture with a coating of caramelized sugar. Nobody's baked potatoes come out like that. It might be rocket science. My guess is that it's a specific variety of sweet potato cooked in a non-conventional way.

Canned pumpkin tastes like canned sweet potato because they are both
actally canned butternut squash. Pumpkin for butternut squash is
legal because they are botanically the same. Fresh pumpkin contains
too much water for making pie filling and sweet potato is too dry for
pie filling... butternut squash flesh is just right for either.

The spices used can be whatever the baker desires, and the canned
contains no spices... add your own. Butternut squash is often on
sale, use that or grow your own... we plant butternut squash every
year, but never use it to make pies, we simply slice the squash in
half longitudinally, scoop out the seeds for the critters, place some
butter and honey in the cavity and bake it on a pan... sprinkle
pumpkin pie spice into the cavity with the butter if one likes,
sometimes I put a bit of homemade sausage into the cavity... use what
you like, chopped up dried fruit works, or just raisins. Butternut
squash is extremely easy to grow... the prices at market are robbery,
but mostly you're paying for labor and transportation.

What's written about Dickinson squash is mostly myth. It's difficult
to tell one squash from another by taste however the Butternut squash
because of it's configuration; relatively small/compact size, not
being hollow, and smooth thin skin, is easyiest to process. I've used
butternut with other squash and vegetables to make rather good soups.
I don't like pureed, I prefer chunky soups. Butternut along with
other veggies and a ham bone makes a delicious soup. I've never used
butternut to make pie but then I can't remember if I've ever made any
kind of pie, I find typical pie crust disgusting no matter who makes
it. I don't like typical fruit pie filling either, it's mostly starch
for thickening. I prefer compote.
Butternut squash is very good grilled, thick slabs buttered and well
seasoned.

When Elijah Dickinson moved from Kentucky to Illinois in 1835, he didn’t
know he was carrying with him the seeds of a billion-dollar pumpkin, one
of the most valuable heirloom vegetable crops in history. Yet the
pumpkin which finds its way into most pumpkin pies today is not really a
pumpkin.
Dickenson squash, yep.

I love the way Sheldon keeps saying fresh pumpkin has too much water to
make a pie. (He's the guy who hates pie crust.) He's talking about the
kind of pumpkin sold for carving Halloween Jack-O-Lanterns. When people
make pumpkin pie from scratch they use the meat of sugar pumpkins.
They're smaller, not watery and not overly fibrous.

I know this because even though I don't bake pies I've paid attention to
discussions here over the years about how to make a pumpkin pie from
scratch. Sugar pumpkins.

Not that this has much to do with baked sweet potatoes tasting like
pumpkin pie. They don't taste like pumpkin or pumpkin pie to me. They
taste like sweet potatoes. I like baked sweet potatoes with simply a
little butter and S&P. Some people add brown sugar or syrup. To me,
the baked sweet potato is sweet tasting enough. Quite nice.

Do you detect any of the usual pumpkin pie spices?
Nutmeg, clove, ginger, cinnamon?
These all have a fairly-pronounced aroma, together making up the dreaded
'pumpkin pie' taste.

Pronounced enough that in even minor concentrations, a lot of people
would be hard-pressed to determine if the base is pumpkin (or as has been
pointed out here, more often butternut squash) or if the base is sweet
potato.

Very similar taste. I make sweet potato pies in the fall when they are
locally harvested. Easy to do and taste delicious.
Lately I've thought about an experiment. A carrot pie. 2 cups cooked and
mashed then same exact recipe as pumpkin or sweet potato. This might
work. I haven't googled this yet.
Carrot pie would probably taste too sweet.

You can buy them from street venders all over NYC.
My guess is that these are different from NYC street vendor sweet potatoes. They're quite different from any baked potatoes I've ever had. Oddly enough, they taste like pumpkin pie. The Japan store Don Quijote, bought our local supermarket and these carts appeared in the store one day. Ha ha, that's just so weird. They are kind of expensive at 2 for $5 but I'm gonna get me some when I go food shopping.

I can't vouch for them being all over the city because I have never been
there, but a quick Google search came up with vintage photos of street
vendors and there was one with a hot sweet potato vendor. There was also
a NY Times article that talked about how popular they had been.

Ancient times. My memories of NYC street food only go back to my
teens.

There is a phenomenal food truck culture that has grown up there in
the last 10-15 years. Best stuffed arepas I ever had was from an
Colombian or Venezuela food cart. Cannot recall which, because we
sampled food from several South America carts at that festival on 6th
Avenue a couple of years ago.

You must be partially blind. There was a period when it was more
difficult to obtain street vender permits but those permits never
ceased and still today are very readily available for selling most
products. Granted that there have been times when baked sweet
potatoes were not in demand but they've always been sold and still
today. Baked sweet potatoes were mostly in demand by children during
the pre '60s but that was when fast food rocketed, but still today
baked sweet potatoes and many other healthful foods are hawked by
street venders. Baked sweet potatoes are a very nutritious/healthful
food however the garbage from fast food venders competed mightily and
so have pushed the street food venders out of business. I only wish I
could still buy a healthful kasha k'nish for a quarter but that will
never return. The powerfully wealthy fast food machine put a lot of
healthful affordable food sellers out of business. I say boycott fast
food and live healthier and longer. Bring back the Automat, a highly
nutritious meal for pennies. The Automats actually fed the homeless,
and fed them well.

You must be partially blind. There was a period when it was more
difficult to obtain street vender permits but those permits never
ceased and still today are very readily available for selling most
products. Granted that there have been times when baked sweet
potatoes were not in demand but they've always been sold and still
today. Baked sweet potatoes were mostly in demand by children during
the pre '60s but that was when fast food rocketed, but still today
baked sweet potatoes and many other healthful foods
Healthy foods. "Healthful" is for soy boys.
Healthy foods are for the uneducated... Canucks are highly uneducated.
Yoose right Popeye ... god only blesses jews in brookyln.

Everyone else is fucked ... cept mexicans.

God allows jews in brooklyn to fuck their mother, aunt, sister and
father (if said jew is homosexual)

Looks like yoose safe Popeye.

You can buy them from street venders all over NYC.
My guess is that these are different from NYC street vendor sweet potatoes. They're quite different from any baked potatoes I've ever had. Oddly enough, they taste like pumpkin pie.

street venders. Baked sweet potatoes are a very nutritious/healthful
food however the garbage from fast food venders competed mightily and
so have pushed the street food venders out of business. I only wish I
could still buy a healthful kasha k'nish for a quarter but that will
never return. The powerfully wealthy fast food machine put a lot of
healthful affordable food sellers out of business. I say boycott fast
food and live healthier and longer. Bring back the Automat, a highly
nutritious meal for pennies. The Automats actually fed the homeless,
and fed them well.

I've never been to NYC
I did by mistake once. I was trying to avoid traffic but got cut off by
some traffic and to avoid *that* took (at least once each) the Holland
tunnel, Brooklyn & Manhattan & Washington Bridges before I made it safely
back to New Jersey. It was a 4 hour nightmare; bumper to bumper stop &
go. I'm glad it was in the wee hours of a week-day.

My advice is not to go there unless you actually have a reason.

Come to think of it, I went through New York state once on the way to Europe. We might have gone through there again on the way back but I have no recollection of that. The Big Apple's JFK airport did not leave a good impression . It looked worn down and archaic to me. It looked like something from the 60's. Mostly, I spent my time looking for a NYC deli sandwich in the airport. Ha ha, how naive of me.
Of course that was nothing compared to the ordeal you had to go through. That sounds like having to drive through Waikiki 10 times or so i.e., unimaginably painful.

Yoose faggoty joisyites would never survive Noo Yawk Cidy... can
possibly make it in Staten Island, AKA Richmond... where the wimpy NYC
cops migrated.
Uh... Sheldon, you don't still live in Brooklyn or any part of NYC.
Care to tell us why?

There's really no need for you to "defend" NYC. You started talking
about roasted sweet potato vendors in NYC and people have produced
evidence they have been there and seen the hot dog and in the winter
chestnut vendors. But no one is hawking sweet potatoes on the street
anymore. People don't need them to tuck into their pockets to keep
their hands warm as they walked back home or to school or whatever
anymore, either. I believe them when they say no one hawking baked
sweet potatoes on the streets of NYC.

They used to until 1970 when the Roasted Chestnut coalition forced them
out. Thousands of sweet potato carts were abandoned, some dumped in the

At the end of the day, even the dumping of sweet potato carts in the

Then the final blow came in 1980. The great coal shortage. Street
vendors couldn't get coal to fire their portable cart ovens.

By 1991, even the US navy stopped buying hot potatoes for the
troops to warm their hands at the famous brooklyn navy yard. It was
all over.

This one was sold in a
cart in a store. Ha ha, that's so weird. It's roasted in a way
that causes the potato to get all sugary. Beats me what the
process is. The result is a very sweet potato that's covered with
caramelized sugar. It's pretty wonderful stuff.

Speaking of potato products, I do like those "Mini Tater Tots." They
have a higher ratio of crispy outer to the soft insides.

Process is dead simple stuff.
STOVE TOP
Wash, wrap in foil (or leave naked) and place on a cast iron skillet
(affiliate link) covered
Cook on low heat for 60 minutes, turning them every 20 minutes
Turn heat off when you can pierce them with a chopstick and then let it
rest for 10 minutes before eating
Produces a super creamy cake-like texture much like baking it at 325 F
I'm investigating the process. For one thing, you need a very specific potato. This isn't a regular sweet potato.

I cooked a yam yesterday - 375 for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Not even close! I'm on the lookout for different kinds of smallish, skinny, sweet potatoes. The little sweet potato cart was empty. That's the breaks. The display for the poi was empty too. What gives?
