    Sweet potato is a popular food in many parts of Eastern Africa. It is drought tolerant, hardy and can grow in marginal areas, thus contributing to improved food security. The young leaves and vines can be consumed as vegetables or fed to livestock. In some communities in Eastern Africa, sweet potatoes are preserved for the dry season by sun‑drying to make amukeke – dried sweet potato chips. The following provides facts about dried sweet potato chips and flour, the requirements for making them, a detailed step by step procedure and a case study from Uganda highlighting the benefits of this preservation technique.
