Enjoy this dried hoshi imo (dried sweet potato) snack that is made only using high-quality sweet potato cultivated in Nagano Prefecture, an area rich with lush nature. This is a snack that sweet potato or lovers of dried snacks should not miss!
The sweet potato used for making these hoshi imo are Beniharuka, which is the sweetest and tastiest kind of sweet potato produced in Japan. Beniharuka also has a smooth and creamy texture that no other sweet potato can compete with.
Purely natural: this hoshi imo is made of only freshly cultivated organic sweet potatoes from Tominaga's farm and does not include any additives. The more you indulge in these hoshi imo, the more you'll be able to feel the love and care that went into making these scrumptious dried sweet potatoes.
Heating hoshi imo is the best way to enjoy it because the heat makes it become more sweet and moist.
For those who prefer a softer texture, transfer some slices of hoshi imo to a plate, cover it with a plastic wrap, and microwave for 20~30 seconds. Microwave for an additional 10 seconds if the hoshi imo is not well-heated.
For those who wish to experience a flaky texture more reminiscent of a baked potato, bake the hoshi imo in a toaster oven until it turns golden brown. Although cooking time will depend on the oven, it usually takes 2~3 minutes.
If you add butter to the hoshi imo before heating it, you will enjoy the irresistible contrast of sweet and salty goodness.
You can also enjoy hoshi imo by freezing it. Mix a chopped frozen potato with ice cream and enjoy a dessert rich in dietary fiber.
