    What`s a sweet potato weigh?

    Mom`s sweet potato casserole calls for "4 large sweet potatoes". But the ones here in Japan are MUCH smaller than the ones in the US. Does anyone know what a large sweet potato weighs?

    It really depends on the size of the sweet potato - perhaps you can use this as sort of a guide;

    Medium approx 5.3oz/150g

    1 cup mashed approx 11.6oz/330g

    So if 150 gr is medium in the US, what`s large? 200? 300?

    We have a different variety here in Japan, and they`re only about 1/3 to 1/2 the size of the ones I remember seeing in the markets in the States.

    They are pretty variable here, too, and I think if you go with 250 to 300 grams, you would probably be in the ballpark.

    Thanks for your help guys. I think that`s what I`ll do. I`ll try to figure 300gr per potatoe and if it seems like too much I can cut back to 250 the next time.

    I`ve used Mom`s casserole for a sweet potatoe pie filling in the past with good results. I`m thinking of adding it to the dessert menu at a friend`s resturaunt this winter for ski season.
