Camotes

As always, I can’t resist the lure of a new food, especially if it is a sweet.  Yesterday in Puebla I bought a box of local treats called camotes.  They are basically yam paste flavored with fruits, and while a bit on the sweet side, are not bad at all.  Plus they have that handmade charm to them, just look at the picture below.

One thing to note about the word camote, though. It is apparently slang for penis, although I am sure that neither I (nor my gentle readers) can begin to imagine why.
