Sweet Potato Jam
We've been seeing this stuff all over the place. It's kind of brown jelly and it's served with cheese and comes (in the supermarket at least) wrapped in cling film. Reading the label - patata (sweet potato). Seemed a bit odd to me. I had a look in my Culture Shock book and yes indeed it is sweet potato jam (dolce de patata), usually served with gooey cheese. The Argentines seem to hack off big chunks at a time. It doesn't get "spread" but kind of layered on the cheese. I'm tempted to try it now.
