First ever Sweet Potato Harvest (Fall 2009)

It's dusk and I just quickly dug up the first sweet potatoes from our first-ever sweet potato harvest. We planted 2 kinds of sweet potatoes in May 2009, and we are now a bit late getting them up as it is the end of November already. There has been lots and lots of rain this year so there are a few rot spots here and there. Overall these are perfectly edible and look quite nice for a first try. Should I make tempura or pie first? Or maybe the Japanese traditional "Daigaku Imo" would be a good use of these?
