I love sweet potatoes but I’m still learning how to cook them. What is an easy way to bake or boil them?

— Jamie Juniper


Well from my experience. I enjoy them baked. I enjoy them in a 400 degree oven. I place them directly on an oven. Grid. I don't even put them on a pan and I cook them for about 40 to 50 minutes till they start to caramelize and get that Uzi. Dark brown color and I batch cook them. So I keep them in the refrigerator so that I can use them throughout the week for all kinds of different recipes. My favorite. There are two favorites one is red garnet. And then I also love Japanese sweet potatoes as well. So If you try the Japanese sweets, let me know because they are a little bit drier of a sweet potato. They're not as moist they don't have a much water in them, but they caramelize beautifully and they have a nice texture and they're almost beige and they look beautiful in any kind of recipe.
