Harvest Time! Part 3 – Cooking Challenge

In Class HG this week, we used the most successful crops of Kafuro and Hampshire to have a cooking challenge. We split up into 3 teams; The ‘Sweet Potato’ Team, the ‘Blueberry’ Team and the ‘Strawberry’ Team.

We used ‘Sweet Potato‘ in our Cooking Challenge as this was the most successful crop in Kafuro, Uganda. We also used Strawberries and Blueberries as these were the most successful crops at Durleighmarsh Farm, near Liss, Hampshire.

We made Sweet Potato crisps, a Blueberry Cheesecake and a Strawberry cream on Ginger-snaps. After tasting the results of our cooking, we decided that the Blueberry Cheesecake was particularly tasty!

A question for our friends in Kafuro – What do you like to make with your Sweet Potato? How do you cook them?

Have a look at our photos of THE COOKING CHALLENGE!
