It's Japanese sweet potato (satsuma-imo, or “Satsuma potato") season! Def one of my fave times of the year. Back home, street vendors have been selling a special kind of hot caramel-y sweet potato near university campuses for over 200 years. Called Daigaku Imo ("University Potato," of course), these hot, sweet snacks are coated in a sugary syrup and sesame seeds. My method copies the same flavor without having to bring out any frying oil - you only need a rice cooker. And it's so good! Enjoy as a snack or a side dish for a Japanese dinner - I promise these are so easy to make and taste absolutely amazing!
