Street Food : Camotes

Camotes are a traditional food present in Central and Southern Mexico. This Mexican street food is closely related to the holiday Dia de Muertos, or Day of the Dead. Because of the close ties to such a central holiday, the camote is very important to the culture of the Mexican people. Camotes are pressure-cooked sweet potatoes served individually to each customer. Traditionally the camote is a pressure-cooked sweet potato topped with condensed milk, and seasoned with chili peppers, cinnamon, or strawberry jam. Camotes vendors are distinctive because of the very noisy, high-pitched whistle created by the cart they cook the potatoes in. One can walk down the Streets of Mexico City and know where a camote vendor was located blocks away. Even though this is a traditional Mexican street food the camote is mostly only located in or around Mexico City or other metropolises.
