Total Time: 15 minutes
Yield: 9 servings of 2 canapés
- 3 medium sweet potatoes
- 9 thin slices dry-cured ham (Prosciutto di Parma)
- 1/3 cup crème fraiche

How to make sweet potato canapés:
Peel the potatoes, slice each of them crosswise into 6 rounds, and cook them in simmering water for 10 to 12 minutes, or until they just become tender. Drain them and set them aside to cool completely.
Cut each slice of cured ham in half so there are 18 pieces of ham. Pile 1 slice of ham on top of 1 sweet potato round, and continue the process until all the potato rounds are covered with ham. Place a small spoonful of crème fraiche and a dusting of fresh, chopped herbs on each sweet potato canapé.
