Curing is nature’s way of putting the sweet in sweet potatoes. That’s why all of our sweet potatoes are naturally cured right on the farm. In fact, immediately upon harvest our farmers quickly place them into crates and move them into climate-controlled storage. Held under exact heat and humidity levels, the starches convert to sugars and they get sweeter naturally. At the peak of sweetness, they’re ready to become Simplot Sweets.
