Kamote Turon or Lumpiang Kamote (fried sweet potato roll) is a famous and easy to prepare Filipino dessert (panghimagas) or snack (merienda).  

Kamote (sweet potato) is abundant in our place.  They grow anywhere even if you don’t tend them. I plant sweet potatoes with the help my my grandmother.   My grandmother has a green thumb she easily grows fruits and veggies.

When we were younger my cousins and I would help my grandmother plant and harvest sweet potato.   We made some of them into  Kamote Turon or Lumpiang Kamote. There are different versions of how to make Kamote Turon but for me this is the best recipe.
