Sweet potatoes
Look for small to medium-size sweet potatoes, which are sweet and creamy. (Large ones tend to be starchier.) The skin should be firm, smooth, and even-toned.

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
