Adapted from Candied Sweet Potatoes - Southern Traditional. When potatoes are leached you can cut the potassium by approximately 30% to 50%. I always follow the leaching directions to the letter and cut the potassium 50%. Cooking time is also shorter, leached potatoes cook much faster. Phosphrous = 36mg.
