when marshmallows met sweet potatoes

Here is an interesting video about one of thanksgiving’s tried and true dishes: sweet potato casserole. Did you know that marshmallow actually comes from a plant and has been around since the time of the Egyptians.The first sweet potato and marshmallow dish first appeared in 1918. Marshmallows become very popular at the turn of the 20th Century and only wealth people could afford them. How crazy is that?!
