Fall is in the air at the Long Beach Farmers Market, and sweet potatoes are on the menu!  A sweet potato hash recipe was given to me that was originally taken from the Neely’s at the Food Network, but as you know I can never leave well enough alone (there was room for improvement, here)!  The end result, is worthy to grace the Thanksgiving table this year, we all agreed. It was sweet, savory, and loaded with antioxidants, especially vitamin A!  Hope you like it as much as the market did…
