[Sca-cooks] Sweet Batatas Redux

I know, i know, this comes up all the time. But in searching through 
several years of old messages i find much discussion on New World 
sweet potatoes (aka in period batatas), and mention that there exist 
late 16th and early 17th C. recipes for 'em, but so far i haven't 
found a direct pointer to the recipes (i'm still plowing through 86 
old digests).

ISTR seeing some Spanish ones, but can't locate 'em. There has also 
been mention of English recipes for them.

Rather than rehash much-referenced botanical info, can someone please 
direct me to SCA-period recipes that are probably for sweet potatoes.

Thanks, and apologies for rehashing this old topic.
